The Truly Grape Cambridge Wine Quiz - POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE



We will be returning with our successful wine based quiz!!

We’ve all been to the same old pub quiz’s over and over again right?

We’ve come up with a nice unique twist to really spice up the quiz game. Introducing Cambridge Wine Merchants first ever Wednesday Wine Quiz.

The Concept:

Rather than simply sticking to the normal format of purely asking questions we’ve decided to add the opportunity for you answer questions on the wine you actually taste!

There will be a combination of wine based questions as well sample based questions (4 Samples each!!)

Each individual in a team will receive blind tasters over the course of the quiz and will have to answer specific questions about the wine in front of them!
Hopefully this will give everyone the opportunity to learn more about wine as well as adding a nice competitive swing to it! 
There is no need to be a wine connoisseur to enter! 
And don’t worry; of course, there will be a prize for the winning team!
Entry is £5 a person including the samples of wine, with teams up to six!
We will be running the quiz at our Riverside Bar at the University Centre by the Mill Pond on the first and third Wednesday of every month. You can arrive on the door or pre-book your team on our Facebook by entering your team in the discussion thread.
