Wine Quiz #1: Test Your General Wine Knowledge

Updated on October 3, 2014

Wine Enthusiast Or Not - Why Not Have A Go?

Test your liquid knowledge, actually not all liquid, and see what you know about the world of wine.

Q. What are Viticulture and Oenology?

A. The science of grape growing and winemaking - one question I won't ask!

See if you can shine on the vine, then whiff, sniff and spit your way through my quiz.. Good luck, and have fun.

Understanding Wine: A Beginners Guide

Winemaking Quiz

More Wine Quizzes To Come

The subject of Wine is so wide and varied, so I have decided to offer a range of quizzes relating to different aspects, i.e. some about vineyards of the world, others on wine tastings. In fact, there is so much to cover that should interest many of you.

Please have a go, as I am undertaking research on certain aspects in the wine world, and your input would be extremely helpful.

Thank you!

Did you take the quiz, and if so did you learn anything? Hope you did.
