Vintage chart

Vintage chart

Vintage charts are a great tool to see the growing conditions of a particular year summarized at a glance. However, always remember that there is an exception to every rule! Good producers will often make excellent wines in apparently lesser vintages. A wine’s tasting note will give a good indication of how the wine fared. Check out our key to see how we rate our wines.
