Christopher becomes the 529th person in the world to be

accepted for Distinguished Membership from the Wine Century Club in NYC.  Members much be able to certify that they have tasted wines at least 100 different grape varietals.  It sounds like a simple idea, but it’s not as easy to become a member as you may think. One Master Sommelier could only come up with 82.

official member count: 529

From the announcement letter:

“Congratulations on becoming a member of the Wine Century Club.  As of today we have 529 members from all over the world.  While most are in the USA, they also hail from Australia, Bahamas, Brasil, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Georgia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.  Most remarkable is the rarity of your proficient imbibing: just 3.5% of those who downloaded the application have become members.”

Steve De Long
The Wine Century Club

If you’re interested in trying out (membership is free) please get in touch – we have over five dozen varieties available at the shop including wines made in Armenia, Croatia, Israel and regions I’m not even going to attempt to spell in public!

Congratulations Chris!
