      I need to edit a question. Question three is technically ‘None of the above’ since Zinfandel and Primitivo are different clones of the same grape. I had assumed the answer was A since all the others were false, but then I checked and saw that Italy was the leading producer of wine in 2010….

        Crud! See what happens when I try and go quickly to be the first one? Answer 5 should be C–it is a Super Tuscan. I went too fast and put in D for some reason. Thus the revised answers:

        1). 1-C; 2-A; 3-D; 4-B
        2). B
        3). None
        4). C
        5). C

          Well as far as I know Primitivo and Zinfandel are two names for the same grape therefore I thought answer D is correct. I will look into this 🙂
          The other answers are coming on Thursday. Thanks for playing!
