Weekly Wine Quiz #44: What’s In The Numbers?

January 19, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Saturday = Quiz Time, right? Well, of course not – there are thousands of more interesting things to do on Saturday than to solve the wine quiz, but in case you got a few free minutes, here is one for you.

Today’s quiz will be all about numbers. No, no, this is still a wine blog, no worries – so these numbers will be relevant to the wine world. Below you will find a group of numbers which have direct (and pretty strong) relationship with the wine world. While each number has individual meaning, the idea is that they are all related, together they define something. You will need to figure out where do they belong and what is the meaning of each number. Here we go:

A. 100%

B. 75%

C. 85%

D. 95%

Is there a controversy here? May be, but I’m not aware of it at this point, therefore, it is an official quiz.

Have fun and good luck! Cheers!

    Having hijacked Jeff’s quiz the other day, I will try my wits on this one, too:

    A. 100% of US wine consumers wish that wines were cheaper here.
    B. 75% of US wine consumers either buy wines made with chardonnay or cab sav grapes.
    C. 85% of US wine consumers say they prefer chardonnay, but when presented with a riesling in a blind tasting will pick that over the chardonnay.
    D. 95% of US wine consumers don’t care about wine ratings.

    🙂

      Oliver, this is actually perfect – you might be right on the mark! Especially your point C – this might be a subject for a whole separate blog…

        Thanks, Stefano! This is more fun than looking for the right answer…

    I believe we are talking about US wine regulations here.
    A. If a wine label carries the name of certain States, such as California, 100% of the grapes must come from that state to carry the state’s name on the label.
    B. Other states are more liberate when it comes to the above law. If a wine label carries the name of a county (state), 75% of the grapes must come from that county (state).
    C. If a wine label carries the name of an AVA, 85% of the grapes must come from that AVA
    D. When a wine label carries a vintage, 95% of the grapes must be grown during the stated year.

    Hope this is right. The quiz was quite difficult at first since the numbers didn’t really mean anything until I stumbled over the US-wine regulations 🙂
