Wine Grape Varities - not a "course"., 1 April 2006
Very good wine series. Each episode mainly focuses on one grape variety per episode, and looks at a couple of regions and growers where the grape is associated with. This means both the old world and some new world aspects are seen.
Other wine info, such as barrel making and wine competitions, form part of the programs.
Jancis doesn't even try to fill up the programmes with taste descriptions, which is probably a good thing, and a realistic approach. I think this DVD is more suitable for those who have at least a little wine tasting experience than for absolute beginners to wine. I am sure even complete wine nuts will also enjoy it.
At the beginning on a slight look at "How to do Wine Tasting" which surely for a wine tasting course should be more involved.
