Weekly Wine Quiz: Raw-hyde!

Vinted on December 28, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz! Maybe we can twist your brain a bit and give you a few minutes’ break from that mess you left under the tree…

As always with this quiz, I supply the quiz question but not the answer – not right away, anyway. YOU provide your best guess as to the correct answer in the comments section. Then, you can tune in later today when I will reveal the official correct answer (usually along with some other interesting related trivia tidbits) in the comments. Let’s boogie!

Raw-hyde:  What is the world’s most aldehydic wine?

Cheers, and good luck!

Vinted on December 21, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, holiday shoppers!

As always, I supply the quiz question but not the answer – not right away, anyway. YOU provide your best guess as to the correct answer in the comments section. Then, you can tune in later today when I will reveal the official correct answer (usually along with some other interesting related trivia tidbits) in the comments, to see if you’ve achieved bragging rights about your wine smarties over your friends. Since the weather outside is getting mildly frightful (at least where I live), this week we’ll enter the frosty world of ice wine…

Ice Ice Baby: It’s known that ice wines were produced in Franconia, Germany in the late 1700s. But evidence suggests that ice wines might have been made as far back as what time-frame?

  • A.  1st Century AD
  • B.  3rd Century AD
  • C.  9th Century AD
  • D.  The 1100s

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: These Aren’t The Göncs You’re Looking For

Vinted on December 14, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, thirsty ones!

As always, I supply the quiz question but not the answer, as YOU (to make this fun) provide your best guess as to the correct answer in the comments section. Then, tune in later today when I will reveal the official correct answer (usually along with some other interesting related trivia tidbits) in the comments. Have fun!

These Aren’t The Göncs You’re Looking For

The concentration of Hungarian Tokaji Aszú sweet wine was traditionally measured in the amount of puttonyos (or doughy grape paste) added to a Gönc cask to produce that batch of wine. What is the storage capacity of a Gönc?

  • A.  50 liters
  • B.  100 liters
  • C.  136 liter
  • D.  333 liters

Please note that this is not the same as “Gonk,” the walking-trashcan-shaped driod from Star Wars that was named #3 on IGN’s list of the best Star Wars background characters (but wait a second… Wedge Antilles behind that annoying Salacious Crumb puppet in the list?!?? C’mon, IGN, that’s sad – Wedge destroyed the Death Star, man!!!). At least, I’ve no confirmation that Gonk and Gönc have the same storage capacities…

Anyway… Cheers, and good luck!
