Weekly Wine Quiz #108: How Well Do You Know Your Wines, Part 3

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 (for all of us in US – welcome to the second day of your Independence Day long weekend) and your new wine quiz!

I’m still undecided about the grape trivia series, but I didn’t want to leave you without a quiz this weekend, so I decided to do a sequel to the quizzes #86 and #87, where you were required to recognize the wines by the pictures of the foil capsule tops. Below you will see the pictures of 7 different foil tops – you will need to identify the wine producer behind each one of those tops (note – click on the pictures to zoom):

3. DSC_0066

4. DSC_0069

5. DSC_0075

6. DSC_0982

7. DSC_0077

I can give you a little hint – the wines above represent Australia, California, France and Italy. Few of the producers are quite famous, and few are less so. Even if you recognize only one – don’t be shy, comment away!

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

    #3 is Silver Oak! Before I knew how delicious/expensive it can be I tried to take a bottle from my parents cupboard to bring to a party. My dad snatched it right back and said no way this is for a special occasion. I was so confused until years later when I tried it :)

      Very nice! Silver Oak is indeed better be reserved for the special occasions, unless you happen to have an unlimited expense account :)

    Silver oak is my only guess. Tough!

      one guess is good, thanks for playing! The wine #1 is also made by the well known producer… I think for the next round I will add the countries of origin for the wines… May be that will help.

    #2 reminds me of Water Wheel wines from Victoria, Australia

      Thanks for playing! I’m not familiar with Water Wheel wines from Australia, unfortunately. The wine I have here as #2 is from California.

        I’ve just looked it up, yours has more spokes!

          Interesting. They are strikingly similar, so you definitely had a great guess. However, it is unknown if the same logo appears on top of the bottle…

          Water Wheel can be up to 16% abv – it’s a big hitter!

    Wow Anatoli, I looked at my wine and nothing matches. I have no idea but I will be interested in seeing the answers.

      The answers are coming on Wednesday, as usual. Figuring out the wines this way is definitely not easy…

    Wow, you’ve intrigued me to pay more attention to foil caps now. What a great quiz! I’ll wait for answers. My only guess is that #5 is an Aussie one! :)

      Nice guess! What makes you think so?

      • July 9, 2014 at 9:47 am

        Ha ha, crew cap. Is it correct?

        • talkavino
          July 9, 2014 at 9:52 am

          This is correct. It was odd that I only had one wine with the screw top in that set… Need to look for more :)
