Merroir and Terroir
Oysters, like fine wines and chocolates, convey the flavor of the place they were grown. Artisanal crops refer to all the environmental factors, from sunshine to soil, as "terroir". "Merrior" refers to the local climate, current, nutrients of waters where seafood is raised. Along California`s majestic coastline, cool, clean currents from the north carry an abundance of plankton that ensure our oysters grow plump and sweet, with a merroir infused with spirit of the Pacific will renew your connection and communion with the living sea.
