Weekly Wine Quiz #86: How Well Do You Know Your Wines?

December 28, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

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 and your new wine quiz!

Similar to the last week, today’s quiz will be visual again. And I have to tell you upfront, that I can’t take the full credit for it – I got the idea from Ryan Sorrell, an artist who is creating pictures from the top foils of the wine bottles (take a look at his web site here). Ryan posted this picture on twitter and asked people to guess what wine it belongs to. I know that many people pay attention to the wine labels – but how many people pay attention to the top of the foil, while they are cutting that foil out? Let’s find out! Below are 6 different foil tops – you will need to identify the wine producer behind each one of those tops (note – click on the pictures to zoom).

And the bonus one (as this one is harder than the others):

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

      Good work, Jeff. I thought you should recognize at least one more? I know for sure you drink their wines : )

    Wow, I ashamedly admit I never pay attention to the top foil, I will from now on. I look forward to the answers.
