Last time I took the advanced, there were so many questions on RIVERS that I thought I was in a nautical navigation test.
I'm going to name a river, you answer what wine region its in, and ask us another river.
OK, here we go:
Dordogne, France, tributary of the Dordogne River?
Serein is in Chablis.
Southeast France, Jaura/Savoie, flows to the Rhone
This river ( ? ) flows past Alba and Asti to Piedmont's largest river ( ? )
Po and Tanaro i believe.
To clear up the answer to my previous post, for the Ngaruroro River, we were looking for the Hawkes Bay region of New Zealand.
Tributary of Rhine. Franken.
Agly River? And two more named_____ are important in this area?
Germany, goes through Franconia and also the site of Hocheim am Main in the Rheingau.
Roussillon, and that would be Tech and Canterrane.
starts in Bulgaria, empties into Greece
North Island of New Zealand, bisects Wellington.
Wow....Had to look up that one.
Lets try Biobio
Priorat was the Siurana
Biobio is in southern Chile, if it weren't for Otago, it would be the worlds most southern wine region.
Drome tributary of the Rhône River in SE France
Great exercise! Is there a good comprehensive rivers list somewhere?
I wish! I haven' t found one though. It would be a valuable document if anyone were to ever put one together.
Had to look up Palouse - SE Washington state by the Idaho border, a tributary of the Snake, with some awe-inspiring views:
Snake River tributary, Washington State
sneaky. Its known as the River Dao, which gives the wine region it's name.
one, two, three, four, wheres that river ISONZO (everybody get up and get down)
Actually, NO. its collio (reminds me of Coolio, hence the lyrics.)
wow, goes along the Croatian border, eventually connecting with the Danube.
Riverina; New South Wales
Minho, Portugese border with Spain
Klein Karoo and Worchester South Africa
Coteaux du Layon in Anjou, the Loire Valley
