When you are born into a family of winegrowers, you might think that wine becomes part of your life automatically.
For me this was not always the case. Even though the legal age to drink wine in France is 18 years old, I only really started when I turned 21! However, it became a passion right away and since then, I have always worked in the wine world.
After 13 years working for other successful companies, I decided to start TERRISSON WINES. I had in mind to export to the US market the hidden secrets that are very often only enjoyed by the locals.
Over the years, our team has discovered great winegrowers and fantastic winemakers who share our simple attitude towards wine:
Our wines have to truly express their Terroir, reveal the fruit (barrel ageing is banned when not absolutely necessary) and have to be produced in controlled quantity. We really want the wines to reflect the personality of the owner as we consider that the wine reflects its temper!
Our wines must offer immediate pleasure when the bottle is open and the aromas released. We want them to be what the French call “Vins de Soif”. It means wines that are balanced, very often low in alcohol and above all fruit forward.
We think that the pleasure of sharing a bottle together is even higher if you know that you might open another bottle without having to ask for a loan from your bank! With this in mind, we are focusing our efforts on selecting wines that are between $8 and $25 on the shelves.
This is the philosophy that the Terrisson Wines team wants to share with you throughout our selection.
