How many different grape varieties have you tried? Join the Great Australian Varietal Challenge.
I am preparing a book on the main wine varieties winelovers should know about.
Here they are unscrambled and alphabetised.
How may have you tried?
I have chosen these red wine varieties because I think they are important. They are not necessarily the most widely used but they make wines that beginning winelovers should aspire to know about.
Some are important in just one country, for example Plavic Mali from Croatia. Others such as Cabernet Sauvignon are ubiquitous.
Wherever you are you should be able to find a good selection of these varieties in your local off-licence, bottle shop, liquor store or whatever you call it. If you can't, find another place to shop.
To find out when the book is published, and perhaps get an early bird price make sure you are signed up to the Vinodiversity Newsletter
