Weekly Wine Quiz #46: Where In The World?

February 2, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Happy Saturday, folks!

Let’s play our traditional wine quiz game. As it was done a few times in this blog, below is a picture for you, and I would like you to tell me where this picture could’ve been taken (name the winemaking region, as precisely as you can):

P1120877 where am I

If I will leave you with just a picture, I think it would be a very difficult quiz and simply not fun. So, let me tell you about some of the grapes which are grown in that region:

White: Riesling, Chardonnay, Cortese, Viognier

Red: Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah

Remember, this is only a fun exercise – it doesn’t matter if you are right or wrong, but it matters if you are playing (and having fun) or not!

Looking forward to your comments.

Good luck! Have a great weekend and cheers!

    Well I don’t know if this is right but judging by the grapes I say that the picture is taken somewhere in Australia. As far as I know all of these grapes are grown there.

    Napa? Sonoma? I was lucky enough to have visited recently and tasted all those varietals (except for cortese, but had other italian grapes…)! So So great!! Can’t wait to learn the correct answer!

    My guess is Victoria, a state in south-eastern Australia.

    The DC took my answer, so I’ll say Paso Robles.

    First a disclaimer: I did use the Internets for research. 🙂
    My guess is Norther Italy, specifically Gavi.

      Internet research is great and very much encouraged – this was not an easy quiz!

      Thanks for playing – the answer is coming tomorrow.
