I'm grateful to David Beall, star of our own video From Iraq to Irancy, for directing me to a great clip on YouTube publicising the Paso Robles Zinfandel Festival next weekend.  

Sit back and enjoy Paso Robles Zin Fest film, starring apparently a professional actor, Casey Biggs, who happens to have a home in Paso Robles and has been roped in to dramatic effect.  

David also told me that, as a member of the Cambridge University tasting team (about which I will be writing in much more detail on Saturday 26 March), he is often compared to the participants in Fry & Laurie's wine tasting clips.  

And then there are YouTube contributions from our own correspondents. Richard Hemming has composed and performs his very own MW grape variety song.

Meanwhile Mel Jones MW of www.quaffersoffers.co.uk (worth checking out for UK retailers special offers on wine), who contributed to this site before being sucked into the final straight of her Master of Wine studies, has  with Sandra Clement created her own channel, Birds with Bottle, a series of very lively films on wine.
