Can moscato please be accepted for muscat?
Oct 10, 2012
I've added it. Now it's up to the moderators to approve it.
May 19, 2014
But Moscato is a special sparkling wine. Moscato d'Asti. Not a grape variety.

moscato is the italian word for muscat, same grape. not unlike syrah/shiraz

Should be able to use Semillion on a regular keyboard since the accent is a bit tricky to add.
Jan 11, 2013
The accent is not required. There is no second i in Semillon. If I get any more commenters who spelled it that way I will add it as an acceptable spelling.
Jul 23, 2014
I added the extra i after the double Ls, because I remebered it as "that one that always reminds me of the Silmarillion."

Ugh--apparently I didn't know there are 2 R's in Mourvedre...

Can't believe there's no petite verdot. It's one of the grapes in almost all Bordeaux reds. Also surprised not to see vidal blanc, seyval blanc or chambourcin. The bottom 10 I missed were all Italian. Guess it's time to try some new wine.

Fun quiz, but I was happy to get 8. Only missed three that I'd ever remotely heard of.

What about rioja? Or can you accept rioja as an alternative to tempranillo?

24%, my worst quiz performance ever

6/33 - 18%. Pretty lame. Guess I need to stick to beer.

Grape juice + vinegar + a splash of vodka = wine

No Valpolicello or Montepulciano or Shiraz? I'm sure I'm slaughtering their spellings...
Dec 3, 2018
Valpolicella is a region, Corvina is the primary grape. Some consider Montepulciano its own grape, but it's pretty much just a regionalized Sangiovese clone.

Glad to have performed 52%

Thanks for the quiz. Brunello should be removed - it is not a grape.
Jul 1, 2017
I second the fact that you have to remove brunello. Although the sangiovese grape is sometimes called brunello because it is the grape used for it, you can not have both on the list and sangiovese is correct
Jun 2, 2018
(Agree Brunello is not a grape). A good idea but rather random selection. If you have Austrian Gruner Veltliner then you should also have Blaufrankisch. Equally common varietals could be Durif, Roussillon, Tannat, Sylvaner, Primitivo (alternative for Zinfandel), Petit Verdot, Torrontes, Ugni Blanc, Touriga Nacional, Verdejo, Albarino (Alvarinho), Cinsault, Marsanne
