What’s your vintage?

It’s all about timing

Having grown up in the Baltic States, where beer is the dominant brew, I’ve come to appreciate wine rather late in the day. It was during my gap year in the US that I discovered the intricacies of wine tasting, and though still partial to the occasional pint of lager, each passing year finds me relishing wine more and more. And one thing I’ve learnt is that knowing which year was a good vintage is important when choosing the wine to buy.
