What a strange word when you really think about it… Where else do you see this word in use other than to describe something as being “old but collectable”? Mostly in the mention of wine! Vintage, the realm of farming, has to do with the year in which the crop was grown. More specifically in the case of wine it has to do with the year in which the grapes were grown. And as we all know the weather is what we are referring to when we speak of “vintage” since most years are of the same length!
