What's Inside
About the Item
The Wine Questionnaire follows in the spirit of our popular Proust Questionnaire and Fashion Questionnaire, using the format of Proust’s handy interview helper—here reworked by Jay McInerney—to ask everything about wine, from your favorite region to your choice food pairings.
