Darby's Wine century club

How many grape varieties have you tried?

Wine century club

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 this wine club than just counting grape varieties.

The club aims to increase awareness and appreciation of obscure and endangered varieties. This is a serious mission.

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.

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.
