Five vineyards who banded together to make some noise

Hidden Terroir is a collaboration between five winemakers who have pulled their resources to attend Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris for the first time this year.

The collective, made up of four vineyards from the Rhône Valley and one from Bergerac, was the brainchild of sommelière and former buyer Aubrey Terrazas and digital designer Claire Deville. Ms Terrazas explains: “The domains are all driven by a passion for making good quality at an affordable price. In that sense, you could say that they over deliver.” The group is made up of small domaines ranging from six to 20 hectares vines, including the Domaine De Mas Caron, Laurens, Lionel Brenier, Eyguestre and the Clos De Noël. Asked about their experience at Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris 2022 Ms Terrazas said: “I think meeting face-to-face is really important because we’re talking about wine. Organising a digital tasting with international buyers is very complicated, because you have to send samples to people who are in different countries and not all free at the same time.”
