    Dang you must have been talking to my wife today. She just told me that I need to learn how to pronounce them and that we have cards showing how. Someone posted a site on here earlier last week that actually had a voice saying the names for you.

    I think it is good to know the better way of pronouncing all the names of wines and for me its a good read. I am somewhere finding difficulty in pronouncing some names of wines like-Chardonnay, Beaujolais, Gewurztramine etc. I know how it feels when somebody ask you the name of wine that you are serving and you dont know how to pronounce it well.

    I must say Wade there will be some other old and classic wine also that are difficult to pronounce. Like you, I do will find out some old and classic names of wines with their pronunciations and share it with every one.

    The way in which a word is pronounced..Pronunciation refers to the way a word or a language is spoken, or the manner in which someone utters a word. If one is said to have "correct pronunciation", then it refers to both within a particular dialect.A word can be spoken in different ways by various individuals or groups, depending on many factors, such as: the area in which they grew up, the area in which they now live, if they have a speech or voice disorder, their ethnic group, their social class, or their education.

    Guys, this isn't a wine but the term shows up all the time. Does Brix rhyme with bricks or brie like the cheese? Seems like its a french word, so my best guess is like the cheese, but I repeat it's a guess.

    It rhymes with bricks. It's a measurement that doesn't get thrown around much in non-fresh grape wine making. We reference the specific gravity reading much more often.
