The International Wine and Food Society publishes a yearly updated wine vintage chart. The “vintage card”, as they call it, is a handy pocket / wallet size. It has vintage ratings for most of the well-known wine regions in the world. You can see a sample of the vintage chart here. It is printed on thin plastic-laminated paper and folds up to a handy credit card size.
It is available to members
for free (I think) correction: at a discount (another good reson to become a member!). Those who are not members of the IWFS can buy it at a modest cost.
In the latest version of the vintage chart some new regions have been added, for example the French South-West (Sud-Ouest). This includes for example Cahors and Madiran.
So why do I talk about this?
Because… Because we are honoured to have been asked to be part of the tasting committee for the vintage chart. Or, as they say, be one of the IWFS Vintage Card Consultants. We are delighted to contribute to this and say thank you for the honour of being chosen to the International Wine and Food Society.
So go out and taste some South West wines and let us know if you agree with our ratings!
