Old Winyards was a type of wine from the Southfarthing of the Shire.

In the year TA 3001, Bilbo Baggins gave Old Rory Brandybuck a dozen bottles of Old Winyards as a parting gift; after which Rory forgave Bilbo for his vanishing trick at the party and declared him a capital fellow after the first bottle.[1] In TA 3018, just before Frodo Baggins left Bag End, he, Meriadoc Brandybuck, Peregrin Took, Fredegar Bolger, and Folco Boffin drank the very last of the Old Winyards in a farewell feast.[2]

Portrayal in adaptations

In Peter Jackson's film The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, when Gandalf first arrives at Bag End, Bilbo offers to open a bottle of the Old Winyards from TA 2856 (SR 1256) that was laid down by his father, Bungo Baggins.
