Wine Grape Varieties - My Wine Century Club List
How many wine grape varieties have you tried?
The Wine Century Club is an innovation of De Long Wine Info. The idea is that if you have tried more than 100 different wine grape varieties then you are qualified as a member.
But there is more to it than just counting grape varieties.
The club aims to increase awareness and appreciation of obscure and endangered varieties. Globalisation has thrown up challenges for small and artisanal producers of many products and wine is no
exception. On the one hand we have more choices than ever, but at the same time we are in danger of becoming swamped by supermarket brands of essentially bland commodities.
The collage below is from my pinboard where I have illustrated some of the wine varieties I have tried. See more detail at Pinterest.
You can do your bit by finding some interesting varieties and at least trying them. Maybe you won't enjoy all you taste but, I promise, along the way you will find some delicious wines.

I have been a member of the Wine Century club for a few years now and I am rapidly closing in on my double century.
