Three in a row!

Italy, Portugal, and Spain were by far the hardest areas to study, at least for me. They're not nearly as organized and compartmentalized as France (or even the US), and they use all sorts of different grapes that they rest of the world doesn't use. As of 10pm last night I wasn't feeling very good about this at all, but less than 12 hours later I was completing another perfect test. This performance trumps my previous best "I don't know this stuff!" to doing well on a test effort, which you may recall was in meat class way back in June of 2005.

But alas, no rest for the weary. Tomorrow is the cumulative wine final, covering everything we've done so far plus some new information on wine storage that we went over today. We get 75 minutes to 70 questions, and while this test (unlike the first three) is open-book, you'd better know your stuff because there's no way you have enough time to track down every detail.
