Napa Wine Label Quiz: How Many Snippets Can You Identify?

The idea for this wine quiz struck me as I was rummaging through my wine locker today. I have a modest amount of wine in storage, but when as many boxes are crammed into one space as possible, there’s limited room to maneuver, especially towards the back of the locker. In many cases, I could only see the very bottom portion of many of my wine labels (being that the bottles themselves are stored upside down). thirstybottles2And so, in that same spirit, I’ve compiled 25 label snippets below, each one representing a Napa Valley winery. For many of the people who work here in the wine industry — as I once did — this quiz will probably be a breeze. I’d expect many of my Napa friends to score 20 or better, and a good local sommelier would likely miss only one or two at the most.

If you live outside of the Napa Valley, and yet you can still name all 25 of the labels below, then you’re probably also a restaurant somm, or perhaps you’re a wine shop owner. Or maybe you just love the Napa sauce. If so, check out my ongoing list of my favorite Napa Valley wineries, and see if you agree with my choices. As for the answers to this quiz, simply click on any thumbnail to reveal the full label scan. Happy New Year!
