We wrote about our experience taking the WSET Level 1 at Bedales last month. Both Amber and I passed with scores of above 90%. The pass mark for the WSET is 70%. When we return to the US, we shall look for suitable dates to undertake the more intensive level 2 course as we couldn’t make consecutive weekend classes while we were in London.

Back in October of 2016, I wrote about my mission to join the Century Club. To become a full member, one needs to taste at least one hundred different grape varieties. When I wrote the article, I had tasted just sixty-one different grapes. Our recent trip to Hungary took me past the one hundred mark. I am now at one hundred and six grapes. I shall continue to keep track, but I think reaching the next level of membership may be a challenge too far; it requires tasting two hundred different grape varieties.
