WineTutor.TV is a new project from Tim Wildman MW and Johnny Mindlin, Green-Shoot.
Launched in September 2015 WineTutor.TV provides a unique online resource for those studying for the Master of Wine examination, as well as WSET Diploma students and others studying wine at a masters or post-gradudate degree level. The video tutorials are designed to advise, guide and orientate students in their self study programme.
The content is 100% video based, providing short, five minute tutorials covering all aspects of global wine production and exam techniques for approaching the Master of Wine exam. New videos will be posted every month, and the aim is to cover all the topics in the Master of Wine syllabus, building up to a total of over 150 films
Tim Wildman runs his own portfolio wine business involving travel, education, film and winemaking. Tim became a Master of Wine in 2008 with a Dissertation on Australian wine, which is his area of professional speciality. He was awarded the Robert Mondavi Memorial prize for the highest score in Theory and his Dissertation achieved the highest pass mark in his year. With a background in teaching as well as wine Tim has helped dozens of MW students to achieve their goals and "get over the line" through his private tuition classes.
