Description: The volcanoes - of past and present - have bestowed to mankind some of the most fertile soils, ideal for the exploits of agriculture. The grapevine has found a unique home on some of these soils, in the various volcanic regions of this marvelous and magma-fied world. The terroir-ists and romanticists of the wine world argue that 'volcanic wines' capture and present in the bottle unarguably volcanic flavours, only to the annoyance of the pragmatist and the boffin. But really though... are you gonna be a volcano or a volca-yes?
