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).

While Virginia seems to be too simple for the right answer, this what I will go with – final answer is A, Virginia
I was going to say Colorado But learned info at the Drink Local Conference that makes me also believe Missouri.
'Show Me' the answer already!
Just a guess – Virginia.
Colorado is my guess.
Colorado. There were some mighty thirsty miners!
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.
