The SOIL COLLECTION


I Champion Soils Because Dirt Can’t Promote Itself.

My Fascination With “The Vine” Stretches Across the Entire Wine World.  I Have a Heightened Curiosity For the Soils That Grape-Vines Grow In.   Over My Global Journey I Have Respectively Collected Soil and Rocks  Samples For Educational, Nostalgia and Display Purposes.  I’m Currently Void of Dirt-Peers, So if You Have Soil Issues and Need a New Friend Lets Nerd-Out On Soil.
