Weekly Wine Quiz: Windows On The World Complete Wine Course Giveaway Edition!

Vinted on December 7, 2012 binned in giveaways, wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, you lushes oh vino-inspired peoples!

This week, we are combining the quiz with a giveaway, the giveaway item happening to also be the source of said quiz: the brand-spankin’-new edition of Kevin Zraly’s excellent (and long-running) Windows On The World Complete Wine Course (worth about $20; I received a review copy).

Here’s the skinny on how this will work:

  • You post a comment on this here post with your guess for the correct answer to the quiz question on or before 11:59PM PT TODAY.
  • Tomorrow (December 8th), I will post the official answer, and randomly select a winner from those who answered correctly in the comments. You need to have a mailing address in the continental U.S. (and have commented with the correct answer… duh…) to be eligible to win.

Ready? Let’s do this!

(According to Kevin Zraly’s Windows On The World Complete Wine Course), what was the most planted red grape (by acreage) in California in 1970?

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: In Good Company

Vinted on November 30, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz! This week, we use wine to dabble in the lifestyles of the historically rich and famous.

[ Standard disclaimer: I supply a quiz question each week, but *not* the quiz answer (at least not 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, but we don’t judge (okay, we do, we just don’t mention it to your face)!

In Good Company: Joseph Haydn, Bram Stoker, Louis XV and Voltaire all had at least one thing in common – they all loved what wine?

Cheers – and good luck!
