Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!
This week, I’m kicking off a series of questions about German wine, and also trying a new Quiz format for the new year.
Instead of using comments to reveal the answer, I’m directing you back to the Local Wine Events website when you click on your best answer guess-timate (LWE is where the quizzes are originally hosted, and sent out to a couple of hundred thousand wine lovers via the LWE weekly newsletter, The Juice).
You’re still welcome to use the comments, of course, and hopefully we can continue to rib each other there in these weekly quiz posts, but I think this nove is for the best as I’m increasingly finding that I’m a) not able to always get back with the correct answer within a reasonable timeframe, and b) certainly not consistently able to provide it at the same time every week.
And so I’ll try this format for a bit (rather than just calling it quits on the quiz altogether, since I’ve received almost exclusively positive feedback over the last twelve months about including these questions here on 1WD). Your feedback is, of course, welcome (not that I can stop you from giving it even if I wanted to!).
Honey, I’m Late (Harvested)! In what year was the first Spätlese (late-harvested) Riesling vintage in Germany?
Cheers – and good luck!
