I'll take a guess and say 5. a junior member of the winemaking team

Cellar Rat: very much like the common Stool Pigeon. The cellar rat is best known for being a snitch during prohibition times. The cellar rat was most often a young boy who was enclosed in a large wine barrel and placed in a cellar to watch for bootleggers and runners who would attempt to move copious amounts of illegal wine and other alcohols late at night to avoid the authorities. After completing his snitching duties the boy was then racked out of the barrel and paid $0.50 for his help. The practice did not last long mostly due to the barrels becoming tainted by Cellar Rat Pee which was not as highly sought after as the more famous Skeeter Pee. :pee

Now that was just uncalled for, I think I left some pee in the floor from that.

BTW, I really sucked at quiz 14. To many region questions.

I would have figured (without multiple choice) that it was chicks that hang out at homebrew shops but don't really brew/vint.

Not to be too explicit, but when i wrestled, we used to have "ring rats", the females that hung behind the place at the dressing room door waiting for the wrestlers to go to their cars.

That being said i chose #5.
