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!

          Richard – that seems to be the general spirit of the day; it's certainly true in my case! Cheers.
