Aficionados study regions the same way that wine lovers do in pursuit of terroir. Terroir is a concept describing how the area in which something is grown affects the final product. Check out the Wall Street Journal's terroir cheat sheet to learn about tequila regions and how to navigate the world of fine tequilas.
