We here at Wine.Woot have a saying: "If you can't pronounce it, you don't get to drink it."

Okay, that's not true at all. We don't care if you can pronounce it or not. But just so you don't embarrass yourself when your friends ask you about this delicious fruit forward and off-dry wine with a balance of acid and sweetness that's absolutely superb, skip to 1:07 in this video and repeat after me …

Guh-verts-trah-meen-er.

No no. That's all wrong. Try again.

Guh-verts-trah-meen-er.

Oooh, yeah. Not even close. Again.

Guh-verts … Verts, not Werts. It's a "V" sound.

That's better. Now let's work on the proper emphasis. Like so.

Guh-VERTS-trah-MEEN-er.

No, you're putting the emphasis on TRAH. No, now you're saying MY-ner. It's MEEN-er. MEEN-er. MEEN … you know what? Forget it.

I'm sure people will know what you mean when you ask for a glass of Jee-wertzee-tray-miner.

Let's just move on to 2:26 in the video.

Now repeat after me …

REES-LING.

Oh come on! That's not even that hard.
