Now, I’m not specifically interested in joining the Wine Century club, but moreso undertaking the challenge of tasting over 100 different grape varieties. When Perth Wine Enthusiast asked if I was interested in joining a group of wine enthusiasts who aimed to try over 100 grape varieties, I was intrigued. After a bit of research on the Wine Century Club’s website, I was surprised at the number of grape varieties I hadn’t heard of, including Albarola, Assyrtiko, Fruilano, and Terret Noir. It was a quick decision to join after noting that I would definitely learn more about wine and possibly try these unfamiliar varieties.
After our first casual meet up, I knew I had made the right decision. Our group is a mix of bloggers and wine/hospitality professionals who are all relaxed and interested in learning more about different varieties. If you are interested in joining or are able to donate a bottle of wine for us to tick off the list, please let me know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
