The Wine Teaser is: What color grapes are used for rosé?

A: Pink
B: Half red and half white
C: Red

Definitely an easy question for many wine drinkers. But the great thing about Wine Teasers wine game is that you don’t have to know a thing about wine to play – it’s really just an excuse to talk about and learn about wine!  So to keep everyone — even complete beginners — in the game, we always provide a GREAT BIG HINT!

Hint: Like your face after getting this wrong.

Answer: C. Rosé is made from red grapes without their skins, which contain the color. A good rosé can be tangy, robust, and bone dry. Real men do drink it. Ernest Hemingway downed a bottle of Spanish Rosado at the bull fights every day with lunch, and they don’t call him Papa for nothing.

That’s an actual question from Cork Jester’s Wine Teasers wine game, the most fun, zany, unintimidating wine game on the planet!
