A “POP” quiz…about sparkling wine or better known as Champagne!

Posted by Craig Categories:

To celebrate the New Year I have made a special edition quiz all about the bubbly. HAPPY NEW YEAR! and, as always have fun and spend it with those you wish to spend time with.

1. Who will go down in history as the creator of Champagne?

2. What causes the bubbles in sparkling wine or Champagne?

3. Which glass shape is the best in order to trap the true essence and intention of what made sparkling wine so famous?

4. Where does the name Champagne come from?

5. The most memorable part of opening a bottle of the sparkly is what? See my blog on "don't take away my what...?

6. In what year was the Champagne appellation designated?

7. What is a riddler?

8. I once opened a bottle of Champagne and actually put a hole in the ceiling tile (actually it was a prismatic tile for those who know...especially my father). My point is... how do you avoid any unwanted accidents when opening a wonderful bottle of the bubbly?

9. How does one open a bottle of Sparkling wine or Champagne?

10. At what temperature is Champagne or sparkling wine best served at?

    Loved this quiz. Knew a lot of the answers and scored a nice 8 out of 10. Hope everyone has a Hip Hop Happy Poppin New Year’s Eve! Not to be confused with Mr. Popper’s Penguins, although when the men wear a tux, they do resemble penguins!

    Super quiz. Thanks Craig. I always enjoy these mind ticklers. 7 is a reasonable score. Two questions I vacillated on were the temp for serving and the twisting of the bottle.
