Century Club Recap

As I wrote yesterday, we finished our Century Club hunt with a final grape of Bonarda.  It took us nearly three years of actually recording our consumption to get a 100 grapes, though I’m sure we finished it well before then, we just weren’t recording and I wanted to be able to point to bottles for my own personal reference point.  Without further ado, the 100 grapes we’ve tasted!

As you can see, it’s actually 101! We are starting on our way to get 200 grapes!! We’re already one on our way and I’ve got about 5-6 more bottles in the basement hanging out with other new grapes waiting to be tasted.  Then, I will be on the hunt for such obscure grapes as Cserzegi Fuszeres and Schioppettino.  I’ll be documenting that on the blog too…though I expect it will take A VERY LONG time given that what’s left are fairly oddball grapes!

  1. Congrats! I’m officially at 85, though w a bit more diligence recording progress I might already be at 100 too.

  2. I’ve got a bottle of Vranec in the keep I’m gonna try soon. It’s Macedonian, and I think the only distribution now is in Atlanta, but hopefully it’ll get up there soon so you can add to the already-impressive list!

  3. Which grape has been your favorite?

    Which one was your least favorite?

  4. Congrats! It’s an intriguing list. Makes me thirsty just reading it!

    You’ve inspired me to starting keeping track myself. I tried briefly a few years ago, but didn’t have good records and wasn’t diligent in my note-taking. Now that I’m blogging, I have an easy record.

    Like Randy above, I’m curious about your least favorite.

  5. Congratulations Megan!
    Now that I have the first 100, I am pondering the 200 list – it looks so close and yet – – so very far. I’ll be anxious to see how you do on your quest for 200.
    (PS – Be patient with getting your certificate. It took almost four months to receive mine.)

  6. Wow, that’s quite an accomplishment! And a fun project! I think I may just have to try to do this also!
