Weekly Wine Quiz: Nursing Your American Wine

Vinted on May 25, 2012 binned in wine quiz

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. This week’s quiz wraps up the recent focus on U.S. regional/local wine and its history.

    A tough question this week! The answer is…


    The nation's first commercial grapevine nursery was located in Montgomery County (in southeastern Pennsylvania – my neck of the woods!). PA now farms approximately 14,000 acres of grapes, making it the 4th largest area nationally in terms of the amount of grapes grown. The state also ranks 7th overall in the U.S. in wine production.
