Wine Wisdoms #27: The Single Vineyard Sensation

Single Vineyard

A wine can be blended from different vineyards and locations. Sometimes wines are made from grapes purchased from a variety of growers as well. But a single vineyard wine is made from one select vineyard site, where attention and care is paid to the vines for that wine specifically. Laws designate that 95% of the grapes in the wine must be from that site if the term “single vineyard” is used. So, when a wine is designated as single vineyard it says something about the quality and focus of the wine. Single vineyard wines can demonstrate terroir and place in a significant way and are often thought to be more pure than other wines.

Keep in mind though, that vineyards can be large and topography can vary in even 1 vineyard. Single vineyard is not always an indicator of top quality. Even so, single vineyard wines are often sought-out beyond others.
