About Terroir Review

Terroir Review aims to tackle food’s most important questions, to stimulate both appetite and mind.

Terroir Review is a journal about nature, culture, food, wine, and place. Part literary journal, part food magazine, we focus on terroir-driven foods and the people who make them. Launched in 2008, the site rapidly grew to become a respected voice in independent wine journalism, winning awards and accolades for its feature writing, wine reviews, and commitment to journalistic and creative excellence.

Press, awards, and accolades for Terroir Review

Terroir Review is headquartered in Lyme, New Hampshire, so we often review the cheeses, ciders, wines, and other produce of our northern New England terroir. But our editorial scope is truly global, highlighting international foodways and the people who labor to reimagine them for modern palates.
