The Social Web Wine Word of the WeekNon-Vintage vs Multi-Vintage

Non-vintage wines are blended from grape harvests across two or more vintages to ensure consistency between years.

Multi-vintage wines, on the other hand, are blended from grapes harvested during a designated range of excellent vintages.
