Weekly Wine Quiz: Say What???

Vinted on February 24, 2012 under wine quiz

Welcome to the next installment of the Weekly Wine Quiz!

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps just like YOU, I will not be supplying the answer directly in the post – you will need to tune back in later in the comments section for the answer. So you can put your answer in the comments for potential bragging rights later (not that you’d gloat… too much…).

I’m on the road (yes, again!) this week (this time in Napa), so the answer might not be super-speedy in coming (your patience is most appreciated!).

Say What???

This week’s cepage synonym quiz is a tough one! What aromatic white wine grape is also known as Mouhardrebe?

Cheers – and good luck!

Our next round of quizzes will focus on cepages, or wine grape varieties, and the various aliases by which they are known throughout the world. For our first cepage synonym, we will look at a grape that is well known for its wine, but also well known for being well known by many other names.

A Cepage By Any Other Name…

Can you identify the most common name for the grape also known as Tinto Madrid and Tinto Fino?

Answer forthcoming in the comments later.

Cheers – and good luck!

Hereby marketh the fourth installment of the Weekly Wine Quiz! Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent YOU, I will not be supplying the answer directly in the post – you will need to tune back in later in the comments section for the answer. So you can put your answer in the comments for potential bragging rights later (not that you’d gloat… too much…).

I’m en route to the Loire wine region this week, for the Salon des Vins de Loire (more on that next week), so the answer may not be quick in forthcoming (depending on how my access to the Global Interwebs fares during those travels); your patience is most appreciated!

Champagne: Room To Grow?

Finishing up our Champagne theme that kicked off the Weekly Wine Quiz, here’s one last question that has to do with the region, and the real backbone of its production!

The Champagne region is home to many storied brands with unique histories, including some that have become household names. You probably know many of the famous few brand names, but do you know how many grape growers actually own the vast majority of Champagne vineyards?

  • A. 19,000
  • B. 12,000
  • C. 5,500
  • D. 1,700

Cheers – and good luck!
