The Douro wine quiz

Do you dare to test your knowledge about the Douro valley? We worked out a quiz, together with Luiz Alberto from The Wine Hub, about the Douro valley and Port Wine. The Wine Hub provides weekly quiz about wine from different regions and countries. Take a look at the website and you may become a new fan of these quiz. If you are a frequent reader of this blog, I’m sure this will be a pice of cake!

    Gosh, only 90 %. The old problem of old people: It’s statistics, stupid! But the essentials I got. Thank you Oscar for refreshing our minds!

  • Silvio Vieira

    I got 80%, Thomas… shame on you! But, I am sure that if you didn’t get 100% noone will.
    I believe there were some dubious questions. Maybe because Oscar planted some bugs in the quiz.

    Silvio,
    Of course I did not dare to say what you said. But both of us, you and me, know Oscar too well …
    (The lacking 10 % I could not get because my brain becomes tired of figures and the for the moment I could not find the book (of Joao Paulo Martins on Port Wine) where I put it in Porto.
    P.S.: Tambem sinto muito falta dos nossos jantares de prova – até os vinhos que abro sentem. Espero a visita da turma bem logo, mais nao durante o inverno, por favor!

      Mr. Kern, I’m surprised you only got 90%, you have to come back to refresh your knowledge!

      Estamos a trabalhar na viagem da delegação até Berlim, a qual ocorrerá durante o Inverno, claro!!!

        Mr Quevedo
        The missing superlative is due to the question on the possibly awarded points on the age of wines. This appalling lack of knowledge on my side, which I admit, is certainly due to insufficient taking care by Port quality producer. If I had the 150-points-examples to taste, I never should have chosen the wrong answer. But we certainly will work on this. Happy to welcome the Douro delegation in February! My cellar is your cellar (and vice-versa?)!

        • Oscar Quevedo

          And vice-versa!

          • Thomas

            Uiiii! Gostaria de combinar uma vista! Raaaaapidamente!!

          • Silvio Vieira

            Hope to be invited to your new cellar, Mr. Thomas ‘Quevedo’.
