The saucer-shaped Champagne glass was supposedly modeled on…

Repost:

The Wine Teasers is: The saucer-shaped Champagne glass was supposedly modeled on:

A: Marie Antoinette’s breast
B: The head of Dom Perignon’s infant son
C: A Spanish orange

Like all Wine Teasers questions, it doesn’t really matter if you know the answer, because each question has a GREAT BIG HINT.  You move ahead more quickly if you don’t need the hint, but it’s always there, ensuring that  Wine Teasers wine game is playable by even people who know little about wine.

Hint: Let them drink 34B!

Answer: A. This glass, called a “coupe,” is now out of fashion, since its wide surface area allows bubbles to dissipate. Much better is the long, thin tulip or flute-shaped glass. No word on what or who was the model for that.

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

Everyone knows what the date on the bottle means, right? Or do they?

The Wine Teasers is: Everyone knows what the date on the bottle means, right? Or do they? It indicates:

A: When the wine was bottled
B: When the grapes were harvested
C: The ideal time to drink

While most people will know it’s not C, many people won’t know for sure if the answer is A or B. But it’s OK not to know for sure because all Wine Teasers questions have a GREAT BIG HINT, which usually nudges people toward the right answer.  Players move ahead more quickly if they don’t need the hint, but it’s always there, ensuring that  Wine Teasers wine game is playable by even people who know little about wine.

Hint: Ask John Deere

John Deere … harvested … sure, it’s a little corny (ha ha), but it’s a definite nudge toward the right anwser.

Answer: B. The reason vintages matter is because weather conditions can be so different from year to year. Especially in Europe. In regions like Australia and America it’s not as big a deal.

What’s most likely to kill you at a winery?

The Wine Teaser is: What’s most likely to kill you at a winery?

A: Exploding tanks
B: Tractor accidents
C: Falling in a wine vat

That’s a pretty esoteric question – one that few people will get right on the first guess. But Wine Teasers wine game is not really about knowing the answers, it’s more about exploring the questions. So, in this case, the GREAT BIG HINT leads everyone –gently and pleasantly — to the answer and discussion point.

Hint: Cool! Can I choose the wine?

Answer: C. To survive in a vat of wine, you’ll need a gas mask, not a snorkel, since you’ll probably be overcome by noxious gasses. Vineyards and wineries can be dangerous places, so much so that OSHA has released an educational movie title, The Safe Winery.

What color grapes are used for rosé?

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.

Vineyards all over the world often have rosebushes growing at the end of vine rows. What is their purpose?

The Wine Teasers is: Vineyards all over the world often have rosebushes growing at the end of vine rows. What is their purpose?

A: To honor the wine god Bacchus, a rose-lover
B: To be an early warning system for fungus and disease
C: To attract insects away from the vines

Like all Wine Teasers, this question comes with a big hint. If you were actually playing the game, you’d move ahead faster without the hint, but since this game is for beginners as well as wine experts, the hints help keep everyone in the game!

Hint: You should plant one in your shower.

Answer: B. Like the canary in a coal mine, rosebushes, being more susceptible to disease, start looking sickly before vines do. This gives vineyard workers time to treat the vines before it’s too late.
