Weekly Wine Quiz #87: How Well Do You Know Your Wines, Part 2

The Wine Quiz series is not meant to intimidate. The whole idea here is to have fun and learn something new. When answering the questions, it is fully encouraged to use all available sources of information, including Google or any other search engine. There are no embarrassing answers – the most embarrassing thing is not giving it a try…

Welcome to the weekend and your new wine quiz!

As I skipped the traditional Meritage, I would like to start with the answer to the wine quiz #86, How well do you know your wines. In the quiz, you were given the pictures of the top of the wine bottles, and you were supposed to name the producer or wine based on that picture of that foil top. Here are the answers (and below are the pictures, now with the producer/wine names):

1. Laetitia, the winery in California producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines

2. Cambria, the winery in California, also producing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines

3. Wente, large winery in California Livermore valley

4. Turley, California Zinfandel and Petite Sirah specialist (however, the picture was taken from the bottle of Turley The Label Cabernet Sauvignon)

5. La Rioja Alta, one of the best Rioja producers in Spain

6. Peter Michael, California winery producing great Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon

Bonus: Satrapezo, a great wine made out of Saperavi grape by Marani winery in Georgia – I understand that this is a very obscure wine for many, this is why it was set as a bonus question.

Talking about the results – this was a tough quiz, with a few people being able to properly identify Wente, and then some guesses for the #2 being Cline – this is close, but incorrect. The “C” on the Cline bottles is done slightly in the different style.

I still like this quiz, so here comes round number 2 – hopefully you can do better! Here we go:

1. DSC_0302

2. DSC_0305

3. DSC_0301

4. DSC_0307

5. DSC_0295

6. DSC_0298

7. DSC_0286

And the bonus question:

B. DSC_0291

Good luck, enjoy the quiz and your weekend! Cheers!

    Well that makes me feel better for not knowing any of the first round, since I haven’t had any of those wines. I’m just as useless on this second round. Clearly I need to get out more! So many wines, so little time…

      there are really lots of wines out there… You definitely shouldn’t feel bad about not knowing the bottle tops – those are generally stand in one’s way to enjoy the wine, so no wonder they are just quickly discarded : )

    After you posted the quiz, I found myself at the grocery store trying to look at the tops of wine bottles. But I was looking at the upper shelves (because you drink better wine than I do) and was afraid I’d break something expensive. So I quit. And for the record, Caymus also has a similar C. And I wondered if the last one was from Georgia, and googled Georgian wines and came up with bupkis. :)

      Yes, that C was tricky – I was planning to do another one for Carlisle, but it is all confusing enough so I decided to skip.Few of the wines I chose for this round are pretty much mainstream, so I was hoping people will recognize them, or at least make a guess…

    Well Now I am paying attention to the foil, never did before. This is great.

    I bombed this quiz.
    I have to stop butting colored stickers on the tops of my wine bottles. Green= help yourself; Yellow= please ask; Red = don’t even think about it.
    And to think, I have some of the bottles in the quiz in my cellar. ugggghhh.
    Cheers!

      Your color-coded system sounds very good – but yes, I understand that the stickers will cover the exact picture you need to see… Well, at least your bottles are protected : )

    Would love to participate but I can’t identify any.. I feel embarrassed. Looking forward to the answers.

      Don’t feel bad, Julian. Most of the wines I showed in the quiz are US wines, so it is definitely not easy for you. The answers are coming on Wednesday.

      Excellent work, Zak! I’m sure you are a lot more familiar with the content of the shelves of your store. How many rounds did you have to make : )
