Well, it is Wednesday again, and time for the Weekly Wine Quiz. Before we get to this week’s quiz, I first have a bit of an announcement to make.
As I hinted a while ago, I decided to change up the determination of how the winner of the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge would be determined. In short, the top three, as determined by the public vote, would then go to a panel of judges who would rank them, thus determining the winner. I hope to get a “celebrity” judge each time to liven things up a bit.
This month, our celebrity judge is Kimberly Faye, the co-host of Wine Life Radio, a published author and inspirational speaker (her bio is on the site). Kimberly also indicated that they would try to have the winner of the Challenge on a future show of Wine Life Radio! How’s that for some motivation to get your minions to vote?
OK, let’s have a little more excitement as we go over the answers from last week’s quiz (I know, you can barely contain yourself):
a. 10% b. 25% c. 35% d. 50%
a. Blauberger b. Merlot c. St. Laurent d. None of the Above (they are synonyms)
a. Lower Austria b. Burgenland c. Wien (Vienna) d. Wachau
a. Cabernet Franc b. Cabernet Sauvignon c. Merlot d. Syrah
We had two winners last week: Linda of From Vinho Verde to Barolo with Love and Oliver, the Winegetter got all of the questions right as well as the bonus! They also get a special “brown-noser” award since they gave additional information (Linda cited Blauburgunder and Oliver named the castle)! Congratulations!
On to this week’s Quiz. Being the complete data geek that I am, I recently gathered together some data on our own little MWWC and this week’s quiz is based on an “analysis” of those data.
Devotion, Fear, Feast, Mystery, Oops, Possession, Transportation
