Terroir [ter-wahr'] is a collection of special attributes derived from the geography (region, elevation, slope), geology (soil, hydrology), and microclimate (weather) of a specific location. This concept relates to a unique sense of place, especially the influence of place on the properties of certain agricultural products, such as wine, coffee, tea, tobacco, and chocolate. Terroir forms a basis for the widely used classification system that reflects appellation of origin (AOC) and underpins the value of single-estate or single-origin coffee.
