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!

      Thanks, all!

    Taking a leap and saying its A. …oops. I just saw your post. Oh well. I enjoy your blog! I am fairly new to the wine blog world but would love to have you check it out. http://Www.winecultures.com. I blog about the histories, mysteries and myths of wine. I tackle the medicinal values, political implications and the religious thoughts on wine. Kind of a different platform. Thank you…Val
    P.S. may I add your blog to my blog roll?

    • 1WineDude

      Sure, no worries. Thanks, Val.

    Alright folks… here 'tis you smarties!

    Answer: B. Gruner Veltliner

    Gruner Veltliner, the darling of Austria and one of the best wine matches for vegetables, has some equally difficult to pronounce synonyms, including Mouhardrebe, Zleni Veltinac, Grunmuskateller and Manhardsrebe.
