The everyday wines Australians pronounce ALL FALSE: “really makes me dirty”
A Melbourne wine lover took to social media to expose how Australians mispronounce the name of their favorite wine.
Tiffany Krylov shared her tongue-in-cheek video with her 100,000 TikTok followers, stating: “French words and Australian accents just aren’t meant to be together, I’m sorry.”
Tiffany titled the video “Speaking Things: Editing Wine” and then listed some of the most common grape varieties.

“My Australian accent really hurts me here,” she said.
Then Tiffany started with Sauvignon Blanc where she tried a slight French accent before pronouncing it like a typical Australian.
“A glass of savage,” she smiles.
Then she tried the cabernet sauvignon, responding with ‘we’re not even trying to say everything, it’s just a savvy taxi’.
Then she talked about the common sweet wine moscato which had hysterical viewers.
“I work in a bottle and once someone asked me for a mosquito bottle,” one wrote.
Tiffany then moved on to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which she believed Australians rarely pronounce correctly.
Instead, the shortened versions – “chardy” and “pino” – were the popular substitutes.
The video has been viewed over 22,000 times and Australians and international fans are hysterical.
“It’s ‘savvy b’,” wrote one.
“Tiff what about the moron,” said another.
“I have always loved learning more about wines and found it amusing that although I am fairly educated about them, I am still like a lot of other Australians and completely slaughter their pronunciations,” Tiffany said. 7Life.
“So I decided to shoot the video to make fun of us, but also to try to educate people on the correct pronunciations at the same time… try to make us all look a little more sophisticated.”
