WSET Wine Game

I’ve recently discovered the WSET Wine Game thanks to a post from David Lowe on Big Pinots.
The game is good fun and certainly helps to educate on the geography of wine regions around the world. As you progress through the game the focus of the questions intensifies and you find yourself having to identify villages within wine areas.

As David notes however the game is as much a test of the speed with which you can navigate the world map as it is knowledge of the wine regions themselves. With that said it is undoubtedly useful as a learning tool and you will soon find you know your Vouvray from your Sancere. Another slight dissapointment is the relatively small scale of it. There is certainly scope for additional levels going into greater detail on the regions outside of the Rhone, Burgundy and Bourdeaux and even these are not covered in complete depth.
