Have you read Roland Barthes' essay "Wine and Milk"?

"through wine, the intellectual comes nearer to a natural virility, and believes he can thus escape the curse that a century and a half of romanticism still brings to bear on the purely cerebral."

Clever, Thomas... with 'Terroir' also being virtually untranslatable and all... Looking forward to the next post, which I predict will be called "Being and Terroir"....
