OZ Clarke and Jmaes May known form Top Gear, who together travels on a
wine adventure. James knows nothing about wine, but have chosen the car
for the adventure (of course an English jaguar) and is like a rebel
boarder school boy taught by the slightly older and more distinguished
Oz Clarke, who continuously tries to learn James about the different
wines and the impressions they make. It all turns into a lot of very
entertaining and very funny situations, filled with humour, and there
is a lot to learn and view, both from the more experienced and newcomer
to wine tasting, on this fantastic wine adventure filled taste -and
If this was to be sold exactly as-is but with a different cover and called "Keith Floyd on Wine" or "Gilly Goolden on Wine" then it would be exactly the same.
If you are buying this on the strength of liking the presenters and/or the series, then don't bother, because there is nothing of either Oz or James in this book. A BBC money-maker.
