Weekly Wine Quiz #23: There Is A Vineyard In UK …
As the world’s eyes continued to be glued to the XXX Olympic Games in London, I think it is appropriate to follow the steps of our previous wine quiz and talk about UK wines.
Global warming or not, but the winemaking in UK is booming lately. Few years back, nobody thought of United Kingdom as a world-class wine-producing country, and now UK sparklers are winning one wine competition after another and attracting a lot of attention as worthy competitors of coveted Champagne. And it seems that winemakers in UK are moving pretty rapidly past just the sparkling wines and making other wines worth seeking.
As UK is a very young wine-producing country, there is limited number of grapes which are successfully growing there and producing the wines of notice. Below you will find a list of some of the grapes successfully used in the winemaking in UK, except one. Do you know which grape doesn’t belong?
Have a great weekend! Cheers!
