Condition Legend

Some of our wines will have conditions with respect to the age of the bottle. Cultwine will accurately reflect these conditions with abbreviation tables found below. We want all of our Private Clients to have accurate information regarding the conditions of these wines so you can make your decisions with the correct information. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions with respect to any conditions. Photos are always available upon request. Note: Wines without conditions are considered “excellent/pristine”
