That’s the concept of “terroir” at play: the “taste of place” that is so central to French wines. And the concept is one that Scott Burns, a professor of geology at Portland State University, is extending to home turf with his studies of how soil type affects wine in his home state of Oregon.

By Addy Indy Staff



CORRECTION: A story on the Ripton Elementary School budget that ran on Page 1A of last Thursday’s Addison Independent had a major inaccuracy. The proposed 2012-2013 Ripton Elementary School spending plan of $775,360, a 5.4-percent increase, will not require two votes at town meeting after all.
