100 wines tasted in 2013 so far!!
I’ve made it to 100!! Yes, that’s right, so far this year I have tried at least 100 different wines in my adventure to taste 365 wines in 365 days. This is no doubt the best New Years resolution I have ever taken on and I have to admit I am feeling very confident.
I thought it would be interesting to do a full break down on what I’ve tried so far this year and see if any trends or patterns are emerging. To find out more about my 365 wines in 2013 challenge please click here.
