The Wine Century Club

Following a few conversation threads leading up to the Wine Bloggers’ Conference, I have decided that this is a challenge that I will quite enjoy. Also, I will be doing some travelling this year that will enable me to try some of the varietals that are harder to come by around here. So, I am now on a quest to become a member of the Wine Century Club, to taste 100 different varietals. I will include my list and tasting notes here on vinesanddesigns.

  1. I’m only a few away and, depending on what the South Africans bring, should hit 100 at the Conference! It IS a fun project. 🙂

    • We’ll have to chat at #WBC13 – I’d like to hear about some of your favourites. Another varietal available here in the Okanagan (and at the Penticton VQA store) is Madeleine Angevine (Larch Hills Winery).

  2. Thanks for including the Artesana Tannat from Uruguay!

  3. Glad we could help with your mighty quest! (#33)
