Weekend Trivia: Saturday
Saturday already? Oh gosh, I think being on vacation is wonderful, but I completely forgot today was Saturday! I am so sorry to be so late.
Anyway, I have started to look forward to my trip to France. Two more weeks! Our plan is to relax, eat, and drink our way around the Dordogne region. In planning, my friend Jean is trying to learn the French words for all the foods. Her father owned a restaurant, so that has always been a focus of interest for her. I, on the other hand, have been thinking about wine and thought maybe that is something we all share an interest in, making it a good subject for trivia today. So a few questions:
1. At the Clos de Vougeot vineyard in Burgundy, the workers are required to do something before leaving everyday. Guesses as to what they have to do before going home?
2. What does "Blanc de Noir" refer to in winemaking?
3. Robert Louis Stevenson referred to wine as "bottled
______" What word goes in the blank?
4. Finally, this is one of my favorite quotations. To
what is the speaker referring (this should be easy, I
think, given the topic). "I drink it when I'm happy
and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone.
When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I
trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I
am. Otherwise, I never touch it----unless I'm thirsty."
