During the last session of my sommelier course our professor said, it is strange, we keep calling white wine white, while we only describe it’s color according the sommelier terminology with different shades of yellow.
This made me think of how fun is that for example Spanish speaking people call the red wine “tinto” – which means red but also colored…
How is red and white (wine) called in the different languages?
German says: weiß
Italians call it vino bianco
and vino rosso
Hungarians say: fehér
Rosé? You say that with your heart!
