Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

You don't have to know anything about wine to use Oz Clarke's Wine Guide 2002--in some ways, the less you know the more useful this CD-ROM will be. This is because the great nose Oz guides you through such subjects as matching the right food with the right wine, and how to actually do wine tasting for yourself.

The food and wine section is really cleverly done and is in many ways the best part of the software. It includes a wine matching service--you tell the software what food you are using (you can combine several foods to get the best match, and can also impose limitations on the region, grape variety, wine style (red, white, sparkling and so on) and other criteria) and the software sorts through its records and produces a number of suggestions, including an indication of the best year for each wine and, of course, Oz's tasting notes. As far as tasting itself is concerned, there is a good primer on how to do just that complete with videos of Oz giving gems of information in his own inimitable way.

There is plenty in Oz Clarke's Wine Guide 2002 for the more knowledgeable enthusiast too, including a world atlas of wine which explains the wine output of various areas and a wine encyclopaedia with more than 2000 entries. Much of the content of Oz Clarke's Wine Guide 2002 is also in his printed guide, but the CD-ROM allows you to link and cross-link between topics, save your own wine lists and complete with your own notes, and watch videos of Oz doing his thing. This is what multimedia is all about. --Sandra Vogel

    How many of us have heard those pretencous wine snobs talk about a wines 'nose' or 'bouquet' or how it has 'woody palet' "woody" taste?! Yuck!
    Through his apperences on the BBC show 'Food and Drink' Oz Clark has become the common mans wine critic, and this cd-rom is no different, although a little over simplifide in some places soon you'll understand why certain wines go with certain foods and how to tell what is a good wine but over all you'll learn that a good wine is one that 'you' enjoy, not what a wine snob tells you to enjoy
