Wine Basics Quiz - Test your knowledge


Over the summer, Chris Kimball and Stephen Meuse recorded their final radio spots for America's Test Kitchen, in which they discussed wine. Starting soon, they can be heard under Kimball's new brand, Milk Street Kitchen.

The very last spot recorded featured a pop quiz on wine facts that Stephen sprung on Chris to see how much he learned in the last five years. Stephen reports that Chris did a creditable job on it. There were a few answers on which the two disagreed.

You might well do better.

For each question, choose which response is most correct: true, false, mostly true, or mostly false. You'll get full credit for a correctly answered true or false - whether with the qualifier 'mostly' or not.

How many questions did you answer correctly? Do you disagree with any of our answers? Let us know in the comments - we'd love to hear from you! Also be sure to subscribe to Stephen's wine emails - through these you'll learn about specific winemakers and learn which bottles we'll be sampling in the shop.
