The French term "terroir" is a key word in wine jargon and stands for the entire environment in which a wine is created. But what exactly constitutes terroir? On the one hand, it combines natural factors such as vines, soil and climate. But equally, the cultural influences and the makers shape their wine and pleasure products. Character is multi-layered - and around Lake Zurich it has particularly many layers.
The region around Lake Zurich is tailor-made to produce top wines. The glacier between Pfannenstiel and Albiskette has formed moraine hills with the perfect slope. The soil around the lake has everything good in it and Lake Zurich creates a mild (wine) climate. Viticulture has been important here for centuries. Riesbach, for example, was a wine village, as evidenced by the vine knife in its coat of arms.
