Weekly Wine Quiz #22: Olympics For All

XXX Olympic Games just opened with the beautiful ceremony in London, and for the next three weeks, the world will be cheering, screaming, crying and celebrating people willing to do more than their best. And of course, the world will continue eating and drinking.

At the moment, everything evolves around Olympics, and food and wine are no exception. Well, I don’t know if there is specially designated Olympic food – but wine – yes, there is.

Number of wines had been specially selected to be served during the Games. And truly in the spirit of the Games themselves, where 204 countries (I had no idea we even have that many on this little planet…) will be competing, some of the wines will be coming from quite unexpected places. The list below consists of lesser-known wine producing countries – and one of the wines you see above is coming from one of such countries. Do you know which country is that?

Have a great weekend! Cheers!

    That’s a hard one. I know the official beer is Heineken, which seems very wrong to me. Why not Boddington’s or at least Guiness?

      I think it is possible to figure it out – but I hope you like it in any case!

    Well it almost has to be either Peru or Brasil since none of the others would dare use the word ‘Shiraz’. And since the 2016 games are going to be in Brasil….

    I’ll go with Brasil.
