Wine - Not Trivial
Allena on 01/19/2006
|Some wine is usually named by the variety (varietals) of the grape. However, many wines are named by the region where they are grown. Each region has exacting standards for the vintner to meet in order to use the name. For example, Brunello must be at least 5 years in the barrel. Bordeaux can only have two spears on each root stock and is limited in kilograms per acre. The picture shows Sangiovese grapes aging gently and quietly in Tuscany. |
The question will describe the region. You name the wine. Pretty easy if you know wine and informative if you are interested. For resources check:http://www.bbr.com/US/shopping/regions.lml?ID=null and http://www.terroir-france.com/wine/regions.htm. The best sources for this quiz are my travels where I try to visit the best vineyards, taste the best wine and get private emails so I can order more later.
