About This Quiz

Tell your favorite margarita and draft beer to move aside, because today we're letting the wonderful world of wines take the spotlight. There are many types of wines in this world to choose from, and some of the more popular ones include merlot, sauvignon blanc, shiraz and zinfandel. Wine is generally categorized as red or white, but rosé wines are also a popular choice.


When evaluating the flavor profile of wine, it's important to note several aspects, such as acidity, tannin, body and fruity notes. The region that a certain type of wine grows in also affects its overall taste. Wine is also said to have lots of personality, as some may be described as sweet, aggressive, intense or spicy. But how is this all determined? Well, a taste tester will typically rely on four steps, which include the following: look, smell, taste and think. They will typically observe the physical appearance of the wine, then smell the wine to observe any floral notes. Next, they taste the wine for its pronounced and subtle flavors. And finally, the taste tester will think about the flavors that they just smelled and tasted. This is all important to the personality of a glass of wine, and we're about to find out what yours is like with this winey quiz!
