Alan Rock's Trivia

Q: On a bottle of wine, what does the ‘Vintage ’really mean? 
A: Vintage indicates the year that the grapes are harvested. In Canada, the USA and Bordeaux, France, in order for the vintage to be printed on the label (as in “2003″ or “2007″), the wine must be made of at least 95 percent of that year’s grapes. So, if you’ve got a wine from California and there’s no vintage date, you can assume that the wine was made from grapes of several years’ harvests. In other parts of the world (and the rest of France), regulations regarding the percentage of the year’s grapes may be more relaxed.
