Weekly Wine Quiz: Grape Trivia Anthology!

November 30, 2013 2 comments

wine quiz pictureWelcome to the weekend!

Yep, it is just “welcome to the weekend”, and not your new wine quiz. We are in the middle of the long weekend, and I didn’t have time to work on the new grape trivia quiz – therefore, as I have done in the past, I just want to offer you a little retrospective into the grape trivia series of the wine quizzes. 

What do you think is harder – to solve the quiz or to create the quiz? I can attest that it is the latter. When you are creating a quiz, you really want to have a balance of difficulty among all the questions – and the quiz should be entertaining enough for the people to attempt to solve it. Similarly to the cooking, where you might spend 2-3 hours preparing the dish, afterwards consumed in 20 minutes (glad it doesn’t take years as with making of the wine) – sometimes, it might take more than 2 hours to create the quiz, and there is a good chance that you will only spend 10 minutes solving it. But again, same as with cooking, which we do because we like the magic of putting pieces together and creating something new, something of the interest to the others, creation of the quiz is definitely a fun process and great learning opportunity.

Below you will find the list of the grape trivia quizzes included into the series so far. There are links for both quiz and the answer, feel free to play with them any way you want. And as always, any thoughts, comments and suggestions will be most appreciated!

The quizzes will resume next Saturday. Enjoy your weekend and cheers!

Grapes!

It is Saturday, the weekend is ahead of us, and it is typically the time for the new wine quiz (I even have a tiny glimpse of selfish hope that may be you even “expected” one). Thereare plenty of grapes we can still talk about in meaningful ways, but for today, I want to take a little break, and just reflect back on our Grape Trivia series run.
