    I think the first answer is B, but only because I recently enjoyed a bottle of it. 🙂 I’ll leave the other questions to those who can answer without using Google. Cheers.

      PSsquared,
      Thanks for playing 🙂 The answers are coming on Thursday. With the help of Google the quiz is probably solved in minutes so I always encourage my readers not to use Google 🙂 I’m glad you didn’t use it!

    Just guessing–(refusing to google to look for answers)
    1. B.
    2. A big monster that lives at the bottom of Lake Vino in South Tyrol, only sighted by people who’ve had a glass too many?
    3. Maybe having to do with DOC & DOCC appellations, perhaps when they were officially defined?
    4. A ?
    5. I’ll guess Cava, Champagne AOC and Trento DOC because Sean P. sounds like he knows what he’s talking about

      Tracy,
      Thanks for playing! I love your answer for question 2. It’s so sophisticated 🙂
      Really appreciate it that you didn’t use Google. I think the quiz would be no fun if everyone would start googling the answers.

    1. Sauvignon Blanc
    2. One of those glass stopper thingys that you often find on a bottle of Grüner Veltliner.
    3. No clue . . . hopefully it involves La Dolce Vita, though.
    4. Pantelleria sounds like it could be an Italian pastry, so I’m going with that.
