Pronounced: DAB-stir, noun

Notes: A simple, but strange word

Yesterday’s word

The word vinous means

  • of, resembling, characteristic, or containing wine
  • produced by, indicative of, or given to indulgence in, wine
First usage

Our word came into English in the mid-1600s

Background / Comments

People with experience of wines may know this word. I thought it was referred to vines, not wines. Our word came from the Latin word vīnum (wine).
