How many different wine grapes have you consumed? Once you reach a certain level of wine geekiness you’ll find yourself thinking of such things.
I started a list a year or so and tried updating it tonight. Then I made one of those cute little word clouds you see on many websites. I don’t know that I have every different grape listed here but I suspect I’m pretty close.
A general rule is don’t know your Chardonnay from your Roussane until you’ve hit 100. I’m close enough now not to be embarrassed at 86.
I decided I was list every grape that is in any wine I have consumed. Many grapes are just not turned into 100 percent varietal wines.
It’s sort of a fun thing to do. I believe I once red there are something like 5,000 different vareties in the world that can be turned into wine. So I have a long way to go.
