Non Vintage

A "vintage" of a wine is the year in which all of the grapes that made it were harvested. A "non vintage", therefore, is a wine that is made with grapes from many years. These grapes are made into wines which are blended together, creating a multi-year wine product. This is done frequently with Champagne, since by blending many years together in various proportions they can create a flavor that is the same each year.
