On Tuesday, we presented a numbers-focused wine quiz.
In case you missed it, here’s how it worked: I assigned each number below a letter. Below that, I assigned each answer a number. Your job was to match up the letters and numbers. To review…
MATCH THESE NUMBERS…
TO THESE ANSWERS…
- Number of cheeses available at V. Sattui Winery’s Italian Market in St. Helena (Napa Valley), Calif. The market also features house-made sandwiches, panini and salads, and the Sattui estate offers extensive tree-shaded picnic grounds. More info: vsattui.com
- The average size of a vineyard, in acres, in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. (Source: Food and Wine magazine)
- Number of bonded wineries in California in 1940. As of 2012, that number had increased to 3,754. (Source: Wine Institute)
- The number of bottles — the equivalent of 60 cases — that can be produced from a ton of grapes. That’s an average figure, by the way, as grapes of different sizes produce different amounts of juice.
- Number of acres devoted to winegrape vineyards in Australia, as of 2012. (Source: The Australian and New Zealand Wine Industry Directory.)
So… how well did you do? Here’s how the letters and numbers in our quiz match up:
A — 1
B — 2
C — 3
D — 4
E — 5
I’m guessing hardly anyone got 100% because, after all, what kind of quiz doesn’t mix up the order of the questions and answers at least a little bit? I’ll tell you what kind of quiz: This one!
If you did happen to score 100%, congratulations! Open a special bottle of wine tonight and toast your wine number wisdom.
