a. The corkscrew was invented in 1860
b. On average how many grapes does it take to make a bottle of wine?
Answer: While it can vary with white and red wines the average is 600.
After creating our own wine trivia game, we found this question is subjective as answers range from 200 to 1,204 grapes to make a bottle of wine. The size and type of grapes come into play and therefore we would not longer use this question for your wine quiz.
c. A morbid, irrational fear of or aversion to wine is called Oenophobia.
d. The word Alcohol is derived from the Arabic language (al kohl or alkuhl). A little ironic, considering that a large proportion of the Arabic population is forbidden from consuming alcohol for religious reasons.
e. What is the ideal temperature for white wine? (Make this one multiple choice)
Answer: chilled (45-55 degrees F)
f. Sauvignon Blanc is also called Fume Blanc
g. According to scientist Bill Lembeck there are approximately 49 million bubbles in a bottle of Champagne.
