Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz, where things are about to get a little… obscure!
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 best guess for the answer in the comments, and then tune back in later today in the comments section for the official answer. Got it? Good, let’s boogie!
Being A Cretan: Which of the following grapes are cultivated mostly on the Greek island of Crete?
- A. Moschofilero
- B. Xinomavro
- C. Agiorghitiko
- D. Romeiko
Cheers, and good luck!

I mean D.
Masi – HA! Good one…
I find the weekly quiz more like a weekly lesson, I have no idea!
Dusty – don't fear the quiz! :)
Well, kudos to the brave two who chimed in (although only one of you actually answered… ;-). This was a really tough one this week…
Here's the Official Wine Quiz Answer:
Romeiko is a red Cretan grape variety with relatively high alcohol content, and relatively low acidity. It's primarily used to produce traditional wines that are often similar to an Oloroso style Sherry.
Masi – :-P. gonna be a long weekend…
Stillers 1-2. Birds 2-1. Wager?
I stopped betting on games a while ago, bro! :)
I was thinking something low risk: an under $10 BOW?
masi3v – ah, that's no fun. I say we do this: a wine dinner, winner picks the BYO joint and loser buys the dessert. That way, it's still low risk, but we get to share some vino, good food, good times, and someone still has to pony up when they lose :).
BYO in the Pitts or Phila? Can organize few peeps to meet us in either locale…..
Philly, for sure – won’t have time after the game Sunday in Pittsburgh.
