Weekly Wine Quiz: State Of (Grape) Affairs

Vinted on May 11, 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. I’m still on the road this week in Australia, so once again I ask only for your patience on receiving the answer (which could be delayed a few days, depending on my access to The Global Interwebs while Down Undah).

State Of (Grape) Affairs

In the 1880s, which U.S. state was producing more than 2,000,000 gallons of wine per year?

  •     A. Virginia
  •     B. California
  •     C. Missouri
  •     D. Colorado
  •     E. Texas

Cheers – and good luck!

    Alrighty folks, here it is!

    Wine Quiz Answer: C. Missouri

    Missouri was once the center of U.S. wine production until the industry was largely shut down by Prohibition. Missouri wines at the time were international award-winners, and were early adopters of the native Norton grape variety.
