Recapping wines 41-60

I can’t believe we have tried over 60 different grapes so far! I tell you, this is the best damn hobby I’ve done so far. It is getting a little harder to find more and more unique grapes and the quality is often hit and miss (but when it hits, it really hits).  Take a look at what the last couple of months has entailed for us: I give you the grape varietal, whether it's red or white, the name of the winery, the country and of course my rating (a very simple one- like, dislike or neutral).

Like: 13
Dislike: 5
