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.
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:
