Wine Century Club
I’m starting a new wine endeavor. My parents recently told me about the Wine Century Club, it’s a challenge to try 100 different varietals of wine. My dad and some of his wine friends are doing it and I figured why not. With my initial look at the list I was able to check 26 wine varietals off the list immediately. I know i’ve had more varietals on the list but I’m not counting it if i can’t name a specific wine I’ve had the varietal in. The application asks you to check off the varietal and then right down the name and vintage of the wine.
Here’s the deal
- The challenge is completely on the honor system
- The wines can be blended, so you don’t have to try a wine that is 100% of one varietal for it to count. It should be noted though that you will get to know the characteristics of the varietal better if it 100% that grape.
- Try at least 100 different varietals
As I try new varietals my goal will be to write a post about the wine and/or varietal that I tasted (will see how that goes) but I’ll definitely keep you all posted on my progress and maybe I can even get some updates from my dad. (He’s at 147. What an over achiever!) Wish me luck on my next wine adventure!
