    The best reason, and what I enjoyed most in pursuing the Wine Century Club, is the history, geography and detective work involved. Identifying and tracking unusual grapes requires gaining knowledge from books, websites, bottles, wine professionals and other wine enthusiasts. Bragging rights are the icing on the cake.
