    Education - Grape Picking

    Here, a short series on how we get our wine. They have started picking the grapes in the area I live and it's been a bumper season, thought some might be interested on how they do it here in Geneva, Switzerland. Enjoy, S

    Thanks everyone, glad you like them, very interesting being there and if you notice on the trailer there were 2 bottles of wine as a teaser / refresher. S

    This is Switzerland? I was a little confused at first as your location is given as Melbourne. New World wines I know, but I am not sure I have ever had (or even seen!) a Swiss one!

    I used to go to Geneva every month for consultants meetings and my usual evening meal was sweet and sour pork with bolied rice and a glass of Mont-sur-Rolle. The chinese meal wasn't quite as good as in London Chinatown but the wine was good.

    Re: Education - Grape Picking

    I have something similar. The fact is that I am being engaged in amateur photography for 10 years and consider it my true vocation. I've read a lot of various articles about the charms of self-education. But I would like to get more out of professional career with education. What do you know about such training centers in Australia? In any of the cities.

    Hi Thork, Melbourne has a good photographic school called PSC (Photographic Studies College). Most Universities also have photographic courses as well. Cheers Peter
