A third size is coming to Chinnock Cellars Cigars’ Terroir line. At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show, Chinnock Cellars owner Brian Chinoock showcased a new 5 x 43 Petite Toro size for Terroir.
The new Terroir Petite Toro becomes the shortest and thinnest offering by Chinnock Cellars to date. Unlike its Toro and Torpedo siblings, the Petite Toro will not be sold in ten-count boxes. Instead, the Petite Toro will be offered in five or ten count-bundles. The Terroir Petite Toro is intended to be a limited production offering.
Terroir is produced at the El Titan de Bronze factory in Miami, Florida. Chinnock worked with Willy Herrera to develop the blend.
Chinnock Cellars also has a corresponding wine brand, and owner Brian Chinnock has worked to integrate the world of wine and cigars with his brands – and this is showcased on the unique metal band that is a part of the Terroir line. Chinnock used the technology involved with a foil capsule from a wine bottle to build the Terroir’s unique metal band. While metal cigar bands are nothing new, what you will see on the Terroir Series is a metal band that essentially has all of the characteristics of a paper band. The band is flexible and has a wax backing so it doesn’t damage the wrapper.
Terroir is a term used in the wine industry that refers to the environment where a particular wine is produced. This environment incorporates factors such as soil, topography, and climate.
