Visual Updates: Tasting Room, Pond, Vines

A nearly random group of wine facts:

Distinct from the terms Reserva (In Spain Reserva designates a wine that has undergone at least three years of ageing, and in Portugal, a wine from an exceptional vintage with a higher alcohol level than a standard bottling) and Riserva (in Italy this term denotes a wine that has undergone extended ageing and has a higher alcoholic strength), the word Reserve on a bottle of wine in the United States is unregulated.  It may contain meaning in regard to the wine in the bottle, but it is not required to.  Often the definition of the word Reserve varies from winery to winery and sometimes even bottling to bottling.

At Halter Ranch, the word Reserve designates a bottle of wine that has been aged in the bottle longer prior to release and has more age potential overall.  Cheers!
