Product description

Quick, true or false: By DOCG regulations, a Barbaresco must be aged a minimum of 2 years. You say “false?” Well you’re wrong. And the new Advanced Level CD-ROM wine-trivia game World Wine Challenge: Wine Regions gives you ample opportunity to be wrong again and again. (That’s because the questions are based on the type you’ll find in the Master of Wine, Certified Wine Educator, and Wine and Spirits Trust exams.) WWC, playable by one or two, has a game-show format. A player spins the “Big Wheel” to land its pointer randomly on one of twenty-two winegrowing regions, organized under five different geographic categories (France, Italy, Spain & Portugal, New World, and Other Region). For example: you click the spin button and set the wheel in motion, bringing the pointer to rest on sub-topic ‘Washington State,” in the “New World” set. Your question appears. If answered correctly you’re rewarded with a higher score and the satisfying sound of harp strings; if incorrect, you get raspberried and a depleted score (but the correct answer is given). Depending on the score, players are rated from novice to expert. “A great and fun way to polish and hone your wine know-how,” says Tim Hanni, Master of Wine. The game is also great fun at home wine tastings and parties, and is an effective learning-aid for wine professionals.
