Weekly Wine Quiz: Flying High Again

Vinted on March 15, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, we’re continuing a short run of questions about the Argentine wine biz, since I’ve recently returned from a two week jaunt down there (courtesy of Wines of Argentina) to judge in the 2013 Argentina Wine Awards (much more to come on all of that jazz soon). And we’re quoting Ozzy. Because we can. Anyway, these questions will all have originally appeared in the newsletter The Juice, but you already knew that, right?

Flying High Again: Argentina’s vineyards are planted up to about what elevation?

A.  4000 feet
B.  7000 feet
C.  10,000 feet
D.  12,000 feet

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Hard-Wired Wine Brains?

Vinted on March 1, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, we’re finishing off the series of questions related to the research cited in Master of Wine Tim Hanni’s new book, Why You Like The Wines You Like (full disclosure: I received a review copy, and I am mentioned favorably therein). Hopefully these questions have tilted your view of some of the wine world’s long-standing (but potentially false!) prejudices in terms of how we view how we taste.

Hard-Wired Wine Brains?

True or False: People who taste wines often, such as sommeliers, may actually re-wire their brains to perceive wines differently from less frequent tasters?
A. True
B. False

Cheers – and good luck!
