    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!

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

    Thanks,

    Yeah, I am not so good at figuring out what the abc-XYZ style means. Stumbled across that site some time ago.

    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".
