VINTAGE RESOURCES

We have compiled an easy to follow, comprehensive vintage guide to aide in your studies. Below our top rated vintages by region are exclusive vintage guides broken down by region. All members have access to the Bordeaux Vintage Guide to see what these guides entail.

Please note, vintages guides are only a window into the wines of the region. Producer style, vineyard management, winemaking techniques, and so much more go into making a great wine.

When buying wines, value can be found in challenging vintages, when focusing on great producers. Whereas, highly rated vintages, value can be found in lesser known producers.
