From Beaujolais to Gewürztraminer, How to Pronounce 22 Tricky Wine Names

Our partner Foodbeast shares breaking food news, trendsetting recipes, and more with us. Today, Brandi Milloy and Elie Ayrouth show us how to correctly pronounce 22 different wines.

If you walk into BevMo and have trouble pronouncing 90 percent of the wine in there, you're definitely not alone.

Even if you listen to an insane amount of Rick Ross and Drake, and feel like a champ for being able to pronounce wine like "Rosé," let's see how strong you feel trying to pronounce "Gewürztraminer" or "Montepulciano d'Abruzzo."

The wine game is serious as there are French, Italian and even German pronunciations that can get you stuck in the liquor aisle for a good 20 minutes. Get down these names and you will no longer feel sheepish while staring at a bottle of "Sangiovese." Or you can just get crazy drunk and totally mispronounce them anyway.
