Weekly Wine Quiz: Island Of Bows… And Barrels?

Vinted on November 16, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz! This week, I’m going easier on you (last week’s question was a tough one…). But not that much easier!

Standard disclaimer: I supply the quiz question, but *not* quiz answer right away. You supply your best guess as to that answer in the comments, and then tune back in later in the comments section for the official answer. You are of course encouraged to have courage and not cheat via the magic of Google.

Island Of Bows… And Barrels? 

True or False: Wine-making in Japan (sometimes called the Island of Bows given the shape of the islands that make up that nation, which incidentally is the name of a very cool album of new-age music combining Native American flute and traditional Japanese instruments… ok, whatever…) dates back only to the 20th Century?

  • A. True
  • B. False
  • C. I give up, pass the Sake

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Go Patriotic, Go Muscadine?

Vinted on November 9, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz! This week, we’re inspired in part by the insanity of the U.S. election activities, and so the quiz is going all patriotic and American on you. I think the quiz may get answered long before the results are in for the Presidential election tallies in Florida. But then, I might become a grandfather before that happens…

Standard disclaimer: I supply the quiz question, but *not* quiz answer right away. You supply your best guess as to that answer in the comments, and then tune back in later in the comments section for the 100% official answer.

Go Patriotic… Go Muscadine?

True or False: during Roosevelt’s first administration, the federal government entertained the idea of providing subsidies to plant muscadine vines in the Southern U.S., as a means of stirring economic growth by producing a cash crop for farmers and providing low-cost wine for sale?

  • A. True
  • B. False

Cheers, and good luck!

p.s. – These quizzes run previously in the Local Wine Events newsletter, which is a fantastic way to keep tabs on wine events happening in your area. If you’ve net yet signed up for LWE, get on it!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Rock Solid Character

Vinted on November 2, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz! This week, long-term 1WD readers with good memories will be at an advantage, presumably if they’ve not destroyed those brain cells with alcohol, as we’ve covered this ground (ha-ha! sorry… that awful joke will make sense in a minute) before on these virtual pages.

Standard disclaimer: I supply a quiz question each week, but I do *not* supply the quiz answer right away. YOU do, by virtue of your most awesome guess as to that answer in the comments, and then tune back in later in the comments section for the official answer. Which might be delayed due to Frankenstorm (sorry!).

Rock Solid Character: Slate-rich soils, such as those found in the more northerly wine-making areas in Germany, are thought to impart what characteristic aroma to Riesling wines?

A.  Hayseed
B.  Green apple
C.  Apricot
D.  Mango
E.  Quince

Cheers – and good luck!
