Thursday. Brought to you by the letter N; as in Non-vintage.
N - Non-vintage. This term is usually associated with sparkling wine. Most sparkling wines are a blend of wine from various vintages, hence the letters, “NV” on your bottle of bubbly. Back when I first began drinking wine, a friend asked me what the ‘NV’ meant on our bottle of California sparkling wine. Wanting to impress, I took a thoughtful, serious look at the bottle and said, “I believe it means Napa Valley.” She rolled her eyes and forced me to admit I actually had no idea what ‘NV’ meant. Now I do; and you do as well.
