Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I do not supply the quiz answer directly in the post – you will need to tune back in later in the comments section for the answer. Blah, blah, blah – you know all this already…

Continuing our current theme of quizzing you about winemaking comes this week question, which has nothing whatsoever to do with Friday the 13th, unless you suffer from triskaidekaphobia and feel that you will answer unluckily, I mean:

A Rosé Is A Rose Is A What?

How are rosé wines made?

  • A. Red wine grapes are pressed directly, and the juice is fermented without any contact with the grape skins (as in white wine).
  • B. Exactly the same way as red wine, only for a shorter, abbreviated period of maceration.
  • C. “Free run” juice from maceration of red wine grapes is “bled” from the grapes, and then continues fermentation without skin contact.
  • D. Red and white wines are blended together.
  • E. All of the above

Cheers – and good luck!
