Geek Out! Helpful videos for Wine Students

If, like me, you are underway with some sort of Winey exams at the moment and like me, you are bored of books already, there are some fantastic and informative videos on youtube which can be a fantastic way to revise.

Whether you are on with WSET level 2, 3 or Diploma, there are still relatively simple things which can be hard to grasp and I personally find that having something a little more visual to learn from can be a great way to absorb knowledge.

Now it is worth remembering that you can't expect to find hollywood special-effects or A-List celebrities in most wine videos on youtube, more likely nervous, cold and awkward winery workers but the knowledge is what's important after-all.

The first videos that I have found to be very helpful while studying are to do with pruning and the differences between cane and spur pruning. It can be a little hard to visualise when you have only seen pictures in a text-book, so these two videos have come in very handy indeed.

Now when the question comes up in your exam, you have no excuse not to get it right!

I will post more videos as and when I find them, so stay tuned!
