Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, peoples.
Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I supply the quiz question each week, but do *not* supply the quiz answer directly in the post. That’s because YOU are supposed to supply the answer in the comments, and then tune back in later today in the comments section for the official answer.
Que Quercus? Oak used in wine barrels generally belongs to the genus Quercus. What is the name of the "True White Oak" used for wine barrels made from American oak?
- A. Quercus petraea
- B. Quercus robur
- C. Quercus alba
Cheers, and good luck!
