“Cerebral wine experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Terroir. I've been coming here for years for many reasons, not least of which is one of the most outstanding, curated and geeky wine lists around. This is not a place for someone new into wine. It's for wine nerds of all ages. The place is so cerebral -- so many levels of art, music, science, and wine converged to create a unique drinking atmosphere. Now, though, back to the list. From the rad photoshopped pictures that accompany wine descriptions to the infamous "summer of riesling" campaign (during the summer, Terroir's white wine list is only riesling bottlings) to the fact I can purchase a 10-year-old Lebanese wine, it's a booklet I can pour over for hours. The staff, though, rocks and will easily help point you in the direction you want to go...because you haven't even seen the food menu yet...

“Winelicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

Great service last night at Terroir! Our server steered us in all the directions that we wanted to go, from a juicy, gamey Mordeuse from the Savoie to a 1981 Rioja that knocked our sox off. The bone marrow is a definite! This is a great wine bar! I will be going back, for sure, to try more.

“this place was my inspiration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2011

We visited terroir on 412E 3rd last year already, this year it was the one in Soho. Both places are a riot. The variety of wine they offer - even by the glass - is amazing. The menu just fun to read and the staff is extremely knowledgable. I own a winebar close to Frankfurt and a lot of things I saw at terroir was exactly the way I always wanted to have it - and maybe so far did not dare to realise it.... Thanks Paul!!!!
