'10 or '11
« on: October 20, 2010, 09:24:25 AM »
I make my own wine from grapes that I grow in the backyard and was curious.  If I harvested my grapes this year and bottled my wine next year is it considered a 2010 wine or 2011?  Just getting ready to make labels and figured I would try and find an answer to this.  I usually would consider it 2010 wine or whatever year I harvested and began the fermentation but Im not entirely sure.
Thanks for the help guys.

Typically vintage refers to the year of the grapes, not the wine.  But it's your wine, you can put whatever date you want on it :)
