Weekly Wine Quiz #28: Where Is The Wine In This Picture?

September 8, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

This week’s quiz will be slightly different than most of the quizzes before – it will not be a multiple choice question. It will be more of a “what is it” type of posts which I’d done a few times in the past (here is one example for you, and here is another). This time, you will have to use the comments section to provide an answer.

Below is the picture which is very much relevant to wine – but this is up to you to figure out how. So this is the main question  – how this picture relates to wine. For the bonus questions, all the particulars – what, where and even when. I understand that it is not an easy question – you can find some clues in my twitter stream @talkavino if you will look at my tweets over the last few days. Good luck!

Have a great weekend! Cheers!

    Is that Chateau Ste. Michelle? If so, the quiz has something to do with Riesling!

    This one was different and interesting…
    Searching google images for “giant glass fruit” got me one hit that located a very similar but not quite the same piece via Google Earth placemark in the Golden Gate park. Looking at the background in that photo I figured it probably had something to do with the De Young museum. Following that lead got me the piece (“Fruit Still Life”) and the artists’ names (Flora Mace and Joey Kirkpatrick). Still nothing to do with wines… Yet… Searching artists’ names in combination with “wine” or “winery” eventually lead me to the 1998 Chateau St. Michelle Meritage and the images of another of the pieces in the series that sits in the winery. Now that umbrella stand by the door made sense!
    Not sure if I am the first one to guess but if I am you know where to send the prize 🙂
    As an aside, the piece at the winery looks much, much smaller than the one at the museum. Reading photo comments and looking through images makes me think the pear is about 3 to 4 foot tall! It’s a wonderful museum if you are in SF and have time to visit. Japanese tea garden next door is also a gem 🙂
