Wine Quiz #10
Over the holidays and the end 2012 I decided not to make a weekly wine quiz. The holiday season is over and it’s time for Vino in Love’s weekly wine quiz! As always there is nothing to lose! The winners get ultimate bragging rights for one week! Just like last year each quiz will contain five questions. You can participate by using the comment form.
Good luck and happy quizzing!
