Weekly Wine Quiz: Banking On Uruguay?

Vinted on April 5, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Bienvenidos – and, as I’ll explain in just a moment, adios – to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, I’m preparing to head back down South of the equator, this time to Uruguay to tour its budding (from a global market perspective) wine regions. And so this week’s quiz is a bit of a brain-wrangler about the Uruguay’s wine scene (maybe it will help me learn something new before I haul my butt down there!).

This week, we’re also bidding farewell to the Weekly Wine Quiz series here on 1WD. It’s been a good run – well over a year – and a fun one, but the increase in my paying gigs (more on those coming soon… stay tuned) means that something has to give time-wise, and that something is the (gratis) republishing of the weekly quiz. I’ll still be penning this series, and it will still be free to access, but from here on out you’ll just need to subscribe to the awesome wine newsletter The Juice to read it (and look, if you’re not already a subscriber… what the hell are you waiting for?!??).

True or False: Uruguay’s wine growing regions resemble those of Bordeaux’s Right Bank?

A.  True
B.  False

Cheers – and good luck!

Weekly Wine Quiz: Ties That Bind (Food To Wine)

Vinted on February 15, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, we’re continuing the theme of questions relating to research cited in iconoclastic 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 he sent the thing to me).

I’ve been having my mind rocked regularly by Tim’s new book – though I can tell you that it needs editing and already requires a layout re-do. Whatever… let’s just have some fun with this…

Ties That Bind (Food To Wine)

True or False: The higher your emotional ties to wine and food matching, the less likely you are to perceive the match as a good one?

A.  True
B.  False

Cheers – and good luck!

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: Say What???

Vinted on February 24, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the next installment of the Weekly Wine Quiz!

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps just like YOU, I will not be supplying the answer directly in the post – you will need to tune back in later in the comments section for the answer. So you can put your answer in the comments for potential bragging rights later (not that you’d gloat… too much…).

I’m on the road (yes, again!) this week (this time in Napa), so the answer might not be super-speedy in coming (your patience is most appreciated!).

Say What???

This week’s cepage synonym quiz is a tough one! What aromatic white wine grape is also known as Mouhardrebe?

Cheers – and good luck!
