Weekly Wine Quiz: Winning!

Vinted on September 28, 2012 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, peoples!

Standard disclaimer: based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent peeps like you, I supply the quiz question each week, but I do *not* supply the quiz answer immediately. YOU supply your choice for the answer in the comments, and then tune back in later today in the comments section for the official answer. Which might be delayed due to my travels (yes, again).

“Winning!” – The U.S. is no stranger to winning wine awards. One of the most decorated wines from the U.S. in the 1800s was made from what grape?

A. Cabernet Sauvignon
B. Norton
C. Chardonnay
D. Concord

Cheers, and good luck!

    Good one, Joe.

    I'd say it was catawba, but then I noticed your wording "one of the most decorated…" and relaized it could be a few others like the red cat.

  • James Nordaker

    I think it was B, Norton grape.

  • baconator

    Gotta go with B also.

  • Dusty

    I'll say D because I have no idea and D is just my favorite!

  • Dusty

    Wow, it must be early… I meant A was my favorite. oops.

  • BKP

    The answer is Norton.

  • Thomas Pellechia

    Now that I think of it, "most decorated" isn't much of a pinpoint phrase without context ;)

    We split the votes a bit this week. Here's the Official Wine Quiz Answer:

    B. Norton

    According to Richard Leahy's book Beyond Jefferson's Wine, the Monticello wine company, founded in Charlottesville in 1873, won numerous national and international awards for its Norton-based "Virginia claret."
