When I first got started, I heard a person call metabisulfate meh-tabby-sulfate, and so that's how I thought it was pronounced. A nice person at my LHBS corrected me one day.

Duh.

This is a great list. How about

Barbaresco
Nebbiolo
Negroamaro
Nero d'Avola
Primitivo

And Wade, if you read this, could I humbly suggest updating the OP with the other contributions that have been made?
Thanks!

Nebbiolo: Nayb bay YO lo
Negroamaro: Nay grow ah MAR oh

I appears that I may have offended some with my attempt at humor. I apologize if I did, it wasn't my intention.

Thanks,
Tom

Just one thing that english speaking people always mispronounce

The "ch" in German words is neither pronounced like "sh" in "mushaboom" nor like "ch" "holy christ". it is simply pronounced like the "h" in "crackhouse".
