"Ah... fine wine, but a wrong choice! Choose quickly, time is running out!"
—A dilemma is faced regarding Severus Snape's Potion riddle[src]

Nettle wine is a kind of wine. Not poisonous, this wine is presumably brewed from nettles. It has a soft blue colour.[1]


During the 1991–1992 school year, Severus Snape included two bottles of this beverage in his potion riddle, one of the obstacles set up to protect the Philosopher's Stone.[2]
