Champagne is not just one of the world's greatest wines, it's first and foremost a place. Winemaking begins in the vineyard, and viticulture here benefits from the region's specific limestone-heavy terroir. But Champagne's location at the northernmost limit for grape growing poses challenges. The savoir-faire of organic and biodynamic winemakers here makes the best of the combination of natural factors including climate, soil and grape varieties. So where and how does everything begin in Champagne? How deep do the roots go?
