i have used a wines knowledge base for a number of tutorial examples on
building ontologies (in limited description logics like classic, in frame
systems such as ontolingua and protege, and most recently in daml+oil).  we
have also used it for testing a number of translation systems and dumpers
(like fact's and chimaera's daml+oil dumper).

i built it for an example using CLASSIC and wrote about it (with brachman,
borgida, patel-schneider, and resnik) in a paper How and When to Use a
KLONE-like system.[1].  that paper includes the classic file for the wines
ontology.

We reused it in a tutorial (with Noy) on building ontologies mostly in
ontolingua and in protege:  Ontology Development 101: A Guide to Creating
Your First Ontology [2].  (we also have the ontolingua version of it up in
the ontolingua library).

we redid it for daml+oil and submitted it to the daml library [3].

I also used the daml version of it in a brief tutorial version based on the
walkthrough for daml.

i have found that it is simple enough for the general public and also i
originally wrote it to make sure that it had the modeling issues in it that
we were finding in our configuration implementations using description
logics at AT&T.
So, i suggest considering link 3 below as input.
