These cool looking old vines that we get off our bike to Instagram, are they better? Does an old vine yield better fruit? That’s a tough question, and not one we are trying to answer with our Old Vines Tasting. What’s true is that these amazing old vineyards have roots that are known to extend one hundred feet beneath the surface, through rock, into the core of a region’s unique geological fingerprint. After many decades of struggle, old vines yield less fruit, but a broader range of flavors and concentration.
We thought it would be fun to taste some of our favorite wines from Old Vines with you.
