When the word “vintage” pops up in your mind, you often think of it as old or classic. It is said to be that for an item to be considered as vintage; it should be at least 20 years old. Primarily, the word vintage relates to wine, and it came from the French word “vendange,” which means “the grapes picked during a season.”
