About Terroir Selections

Terroir Selections is committed to unearthing the most dedicated and exclusive fine wine producers from the greatest regions in the world. The producers we search for do not just produce wine – they are passionate preachers of the whole concept of terroir, giving us wines that are a pure expression of both the place and wine maker from whom they come.

Brief history of Terroir Selections

Terroir Selections was created in 2006 by Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser with the aim of importing a personal selection of great French fine wines to Australia for sale in both top restaurants and wine retailers Australia wide. All our producers are vignerons families and who own (some for more than a century) and manage the vineyards which produce the fruit for their wines. They all have an acute vision of how their prized and praised terroir should be managed and do not compromise on the quality of their wines.

In 2008, Terroir Selections started distributing the first wine from Terre à Terre, a unique barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc (“Fumé Blanc” style) from Xavier and Lucy's close-spaced vineyard in Wrattonbully, South Australia.
