    Hello Larissa,
    I loved your wine quiz almost as much as I love German wine. Just one comment. In translating the word ‘Der Geruch’ we would say ‘bouquet’ in English when describing wine. ‘Smell’ describes something nasty which gets stuck to your shoe. Ha! Ha!

  2. Janet B:

    Thank you, Larissa. I enjoyed this quiz. Please keep them coming! 😁🍷
