Weekly Wine Quiz: Taste Buds And Undies

Vinted on February 8, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Welcome back (after a brief technical-issues-induced hiatus) to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, I’m kicking off some 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 in the book – though I didn’t know about that mention until after I’d read it). Get ready for some iconoclastic, potentially mind-blowing shiz about how your brain and taste bids work when it comes to tasting wine!

Taste Buds And Undies

True or False; how – or if! – you wear underwear may be an insight into your personal wine drinking preferences?

A.  True
B.  False

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Flurbereinigung! Godzundheit!

Vinted on January 18, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, we’re continuing the German wine theme, which means long, difficult to pronounce words will soon be encountered. You’ve been warned.

As of 2013, the quizzes now work like this: you click on your best guess as to the answer, and you’ll be re-directed to the Local Wine Events website  (where I originally host the quizzes, via the LWE weekly newsletter, The Juice) to find out how wrong you got it if you chose wisely.

 
“Flurbereinigung!” “Godzundheit!”  The term Flurbereinigung refers to what?
ADividing German wine estates among multiple inheritors
BGerman sweet dessert wines
CRe-consolidating German vineyards previously split under quasi-feudal inheritance laws
DThe process of farming steep hillside vineyards in Germany

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Who’s Down With VDP?

Vinted on January 11, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, we’re continuing the German wine theme, and also continuing the relatively-new format of redirecting your answer back to the Local Wine Events website for each answer (where I originally host the quizzes, via the LWE weekly newsletter, The Juice). Get your German dictionary out, because you might need it for today’s question…

Who’s Down With VDP? True or False: The Verband Deutscher Qualitäts und Prädikatsweingüter (thankfully shortened to the much more manageable “VDP”) in Germany is the world’s oldest association of wine estates.

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Honey, I’m Late (Harvested)!

Vinted on January 4, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, I’m kicking off a series of questions about German wine, and also trying a new Quiz format for the new year.

Instead of using comments to reveal the answer, I’m directing you back to the Local Wine Events website when you click on your best answer guess-timate (LWE is where the quizzes are originally hosted, and sent out to a couple of hundred thousand wine lovers via the LWE weekly newsletter, The Juice).

You’re still welcome to use the comments, of course, and hopefully we can continue to rib each other there in these weekly quiz posts, but I think this nove is for the best as I’m increasingly finding that I’m a) not able to always get back with the correct answer within a reasonable timeframe, and b) certainly not consistently able to provide it at the same time every week.

And so I’ll try this format for a bit (rather than just calling it quits on the quiz altogether, since I’ve received almost exclusively positive feedback over the last twelve months about including these questions here on 1WD). Your feedback is, of course, welcome (not that I can stop you from giving it even if I wanted to!).

Honey, I’m Late (Harvested)! In what year was the first Spätlese (late-harvested) Riesling vintage in Germany?

Cheers – and good luck!
