Well, it is Wednesday again, and time for the Weekly Wine Quiz. This is the first quiz in three weeks since both Christmas and New Year’s Day fell on Wednesdays (and I took artistic license to delay the next quiz–at least I think it was artistic license). That Quiz was comprised of a few general wine knowledge questions, which we need to address first.
a. New Addington b. Bromley c. Croydon d. Dorking
a. Big, bold, Cabernets b. Buttery Chardonnays c. Tangy Sparkling Wines d. Spicy Shiraz
a. Arneis b. Barbera c. Sangiovese d. Dolcetto
a. Penedes b. Rioja c. Rueda d. Priorat
This is a scene from one of my favorite movies of all time, Dr. No. In this scene, James Bond (for me, there is but one James Bond–Sean Connery) threatens to attack Dr. No with the bottle of Dom:
Dr. No: That’s a Dom Perignon ’55, it would be a pity to break it
James Bond: I prefer the ’53 myself…
Of course, this is one of my all-time favorite exchanges in film.
We only had two players last go around: Anatoli of Talk-a-Vino and Julian of VinoInLove and both were winners! They both even got the two answers for question #3. Julian also got the Extra Credit, so he was really “in the zone.”
a. Michigan b. Mississippi c. Pennsylvania d. Utah
a. Australia b. France c. Italy d. Spain e. United States
a. Cabernet Franc b. Cabernet Sauvignon c. Merlot d. Sauvignon Blanc
a. Gewürztraminer b. Pinot Blanc c. Pinot Gris d. Riesling
Good luck! Answers next week!
