Birthday gifts by year
Buy old wine, that’s great.
Totally awesome if you buy a special year (vintage) for someone you love. An old bottle of wine from his/her: year of birth, marriage year, anniversary year?

Nowadays you hear more about “investing in old wines”. What a fact is, is that the old wines from our society disappear.
Can we drink the wine? That remains a crucial question. No one can answer. The good wines from the right wine zones can be drunk into old age. Also is very important how the wine always has been preserved. You know, a lot of factors play a role. To find out if the wine is still mature, is to open the bottle.
Vintage wine is not to be considered as a product to be tasted, but as an emotion, think of memories of a past time. It’s primarily a collectors work, with high antique value.
