How Much Do You Know About Wine?

It's quiz time!


Do you know your Barolo from your Brunello, and your Balling from your Brix? Then test your wine knowledge with the new Wine-Searcher quiz.

Whether you're a bit of a wine buff or you simply like drinking the stuff, you'll find challenges among the 1500-plus questions that are designed to test all degrees of ability. Choose your level of difficulty – easy, medium or hard – and decide on the the multiple-choice answers in your own time.

There are questions covering everything from the signature grape varieties of regions around the world to wine history. You'll need to call upon your knowledge of celebrity-branded wines, for example, but also consider the types of wine made in Uganda. If you don't know the answer to a question and guess incorrectly, there's a helpful "Find out more" link so you can brush up on your wine facts.

While there are no cases of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti up for grabs for the best players, the Wine-Searcher quiz offers a great opportunity to test your geekdom and learn a few interesting facts to impress your friends and colleagues. And, if you work in the wine industry, you can call it "professional development" when your boss catches you puzzling over the questions.
