Terroir of Russell Ranch

Russell Ranch recently participated in the Robert Mondavi Institute's 2012 Terroir Event .  The event, focused mostly on wine grapes, examined the current understanding of terroir -- the concept that soil, climate, topography and similar elements of a local environment affect the quality and taste of the foods we grow. 

So much of the focus at Russell Ranch is on soils, we thought it appropriate to share a bit about our own terroir with an infographic.
