"Wine bottles always note the vintage year, but how many of us really understand its meaning? The date records the natural conditions in which the wine matured; it is a biography. But with the use of pesticides and balancing flavors, the vintage year has all but lost its meaning. By showing the amount of rainfall in a particular month, the Piquentum St. Vital label passes on what the year's growing conditions were like, so we can more easily compare the different vintage years. Nature speaks through the Piquentum St. Vital label."
