  •   among the world’s highest wine vineyards, many over 10,000 feet above sea level.  
  •   located in the Andean foreland basin foothills on the South American Plate above the east-subducting, flat-slab portion of the Nazca Plate. 
  •   product of marine sedimentation, subduction, orogeny, rifting, volcanism, climate, erosion, and terrain.

    Terroir links Taste with Place 

    Terroir is the

     …sum of everything that affects grape vines as they grow;

     …influence of climate, soil, cultivar and viticultural practices on wine;

     …result of collective knowledge of the interactions between the environment and vines mediated through human action, providing distinctive characteristics to the final product, wine. [OIV, 2010]
