This review is from: Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure (Hardcover)
A very funny and highly entertaining program of well known wine expert
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
sense impressions.

This review is from: Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure (Hardcover)
I watched the series and was amazed about how much I didn't know about wine - Red wine is given its colour by the grape skin's and Shiraz is Syrah etc. I thought I knew knew a little bit but clearly I knew not a lot ! I have found this book very useful and have added the Eyewitness Guide to French wine to it. I will be using these to assist in several purchases in the South of France this summer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this book if you like Oz Clark and James May., 26 Feb 2009

This review is from: Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure (Hardcover)
Disappointing, in that it is 99.99% wine information and less than 0.01% "Oz and James". I bought this on the strength of having enjoyed the TV series because of the personalities and their banter during the series, but there is NONE of the TV humour in this book.

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.
