In the world of wine, the word cru, which refers to a single origin, is closely related to the concept of terroir where the vine is planted.
The soil, its characteristics; the climate that the area presents; the altitude of the land, its inclination; among other aspects, just as they define the final result of the wine, they do so with other crops such as cocoa.
