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.
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.
