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!).

A.  Hayseed
B.  Green apple
C.  Apricot

E.  Quince

Cheers – and good luck!
