Ok I like beating this drum.....a fun way (excuse if you will) to taste a lot of different wines is to log on to www.winecentury.com

There is an application you can fill in yourself with about 200 grape varieties listed. Those of us that are purists try to find and taste each grape on it's own witch is worth the exploration. I have found surprises along my journey with wine and a few grapes that I felt should be left for blending only. Some are expensive and some are easy to find and very cheap (under $10). Since I travel a bit I may have slightly better access to wine markets across the region. There are some local groups that use finding new wines a good excuse to get together. Often it is the research to find a grape variety that is fun and sometimes it is friends knowing your quest that find and share the wines.

What are you waiting for? I have over 200 grapes under my belt in a little over 2 years.

Full Disclosure: I do not have any ownership in the company sponsoring this, only a love of wine in all it's forms.

PS to HGBG - I don't think Norton is on the list I had to add it to my application.
