TikTok user reveals the popular wines Australians are pronouncing WRONG – from moscato to sauvignon blanc

  • A woman has demonstrated how Aussies mispronounce the names of wines 
  • Tiffany Krylov, from Melbourne, shared a now-viral TikTok video 
  • She attempted the French pronunciation before demonstrating the Aussie slang 
  • Sauvignon blanc is called a ‘sav’ and moscato is pronounced as ‘moscardo’  


An amused TikTok user has revealed how Australians mispronounce the names of different wines and instead use slang terms. 

Tiffany Krylov, from Melbourne, shared a now-viral video where she demonstrated how the names of wines are shortened or ‘butchered’ into slang, making it easier to say.

In the clip she attempted to say the correct French pronunciation before demonstrating the typical Aussie version.

‘My Australian accent really does me dirty here,’ she said, later adding: ‘French words and Australian accents just aren’t meant to be with each other I’m sorry.’

Rather than pronouncing ‘sauvignon blanc’ correctly, Australians typically call the French white wine a ‘sav’.

‘We don’t even try and say the full thing,’ Tiffany said.

She said this applies to the red wine ‘cabernet sauvignon’ that’s often referred to as a ‘cab sav’. 

While the word for the sweet wine ‘moscato’ is easy to say, Tiffany said it’s pronounced as ‘moscardo’ in Australia.

Popular wines chardonnay and pinot nior are also ‘butcher further’ to ‘chardy’ or ‘pino’.

The short video left thousands in hysterics and has been viewed more than 23,000 times.

‘I work in a bottle-o and once had someone ask me for a bottle of mosquito,’ one person wrote in the comments.

Another referred to a sauvignon blanc as ‘savvy b’.

‘I love how wine goes from sounding fancy to bogan because of an Australian accent,’ another said.
