Wine Aging

One of the questions that gets asked very often is "How long can I age my wines?" This is a difficult question to answer given the number of variables that need to be taken into consideration.


Wine Aging

There are, however, some general guidelines that you can follow.

In general, red wines will benefit more from bottle aging that white wines. Red wines contain a higher concentration of tannins which require some aging to soften into a less bitter component. As well, an oaked wine will benefit more from aging than a non-oaked wine.

The majority of our wines will benefit from bottle aging with the exception of the "coolers" which are designed to be consumed right away.

Wines made from concentrates will show definite improvement with a month to two in the bottle, while the wines made from juices will peak at 12 to 16 months.

Although our wines will be palatable when they are being bottled, only you can judge when they are perfect for consumption. You are your own connoisseur in so much as only you know when it tastes best to you.
