Weekly Wine Quiz: Island Of Bows… And Barrels?

Vinted on November 16, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz! This week, I’m going easier on you (last week’s question was a tough one…). But not that much easier!

Standard disclaimer: I supply the quiz question, but *not* quiz answer 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.

Island Of Bows… And Barrels? 

True or False: Wine-making in Japan (sometimes called the Island of Bows given the shape of the islands that make up that nation, which incidentally is the name of a very cool album of new-age music combining Native American flute and traditional Japanese instruments… ok, whatever…) dates back only to the 20th Century?

  • A. True
  • B. False
  • C. I give up, pass the Sake

Cheers – and good luck!
