Comparing Artadi terroirs: Single vineyard wines

A recent sale preview tasting at Christie's gave Sarah Jane Evans MW an opportunity to examine Artadi's terroir-driven approach...

From the beginning, Artadi’s focus has been on the terroirs of their vineyards – hence the strapline on their tasting sheets: ‘Artadi Is Terroir’.
