Is terroir/taste of place real?

Does the origin of a place a food product originated from in of itself provide a taste or mouth-feel to the party, excluding what taste a product would normally have from plain old trying to make good product? Like for instance, with the same procedure, same species of grass feed for the animal, and etc., would a parmesan cheese made in Canada taste different from parmesan cheese made in Italy? Also, can one be a legitimate foodie and/or chef without traveling to Spain to have authentic Spain mushrooms? :p
