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.
Val D'Orcia, Tuscany.
Collio Goriziano Fruili Italy.
Merloux in Beaujoulais/N Rhone?
Adda - Tributarty of the Po flows through Valtellina
Nive - Southwest France Juracon
Brenne - 60 miles south of Tours Trib of the Armancon Yonne department?
World Atlas of Wine has the Brenne flowing through Vouvray, but the map is cut off so I do not know where it ends up.
Nive cuts through Irouleguy, according to Sotheby's, .
Anyone find Merloux?
Thur river is in Alsace flowing through Thann.
Googled Merloux to no avail.
Merloux : In Beaujolais south of the Morgon river.
Allright gloves are off!
Who gets it without Google?
Mount Lofty Ranges South Australia.
Here are the questions and answers so far.
