The short answer to the question is yes. But there is more to it than that. Most wine in the world is made and consumed locally. These wines won’t usually have a vintage date on them. Vintage, of course, means that the grapes were grown and harvested in one given year. That is the year on the label. Many people believe that all wine improves with age. Not so. If there were no vintage year on the label, we would not be able to tell how old the wine is. Depending on the wine and where it was made, a wine could be too old to drink or too young to drink.
