The everyday wines Australians are pronouncing ALL WRONG: ‘Really does me dirty’
A Melbourne wine fan has taken to social media to expose just how Australians are pronouncing the name of their favourite vino all wrong.
Tiffany Krylov shared her tongue-in-cheek video with her 100,000-strong TikTok following, declaring: “French words and Australian accents just aren’t meant to be with each other I’m sorry.”
Tiffany titled the video “Pronouncing things: Wine edition” and went on to list some of the more common varietals.

“My Australian accent really does me dirty here,” she said.
Moving on, Tiffany began with sauvignon blanc where she attempted a slight French accent before she pronounced it like a typical Australian.
“A glass of sav,” she smiled.
Then she attempted cabernet sauvignon responding with “we don’t even try and say the full thing, this is just a cab sav”.
Next, she spoke about the common sweet wine moscato which had viewers in hysterics.
“I work in a bottle-o and once had someone ask me for a bottle of mosquito,” one wrote.
Tiffany than tackled chardonnay and pinot noir both of 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 has both Australians and international fans in hysterics.
“It’s ‘savvy b’,” one wrote.
“Tiff what about the goon,” another said.
“I’ve always loved learning about wines and I just found it amusing that even though I’m fairly educated about them I’m still like a lot of other Aussies and completely butcher their pronunciations,” Tiffany told 7Life.
“So I decided to film the video to poke some fun at us but also try educate people about the correct pronunciations at the same time… try to make us all sound a little fancier.”
