I really enjoy this show, i've watched it through about 4 times. I have the first series aswell but i find this secoind series is better, more variety in the people they meet and James isnt as close minded and slightly arrogant as he is in the first series. Its actually quite educational to, giving me enough of a basic knowledge about what wines i would like aswell as why they are grown where they are and taste like they do. It has some very funny moments and one particular scene invloving garlic wine had me genuinley laughing out loud, the humour can be dry so it possibley wont be for everyone but this show about 2 English dandies travelling around California is something i am glad i found.

A very funny and highly entertaining program of well known wine expert
OZ Clarke and James 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 (a big American Bus) 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 is an excellent series, which when first viewing on TV I thought not as good as the first series in France. However, having watched it again on DVD, I feel that it is actually more enjoyable than the first series, especially as the rapport and friendship between James and Oz has now been firmly established, and with that it can clearly be seen that they are really enjoying themselves on this trip, which in turn, makes it more fun for the viewer.

The series as a travel programme is enjoyable, with lovely scenery and vistas, and an interesting cross-section of 'Californians', mostly posing as wine-makers, but in a couple of cases, actually making it themselves! From a wine information standpoint, I learnt something from it, especially about American wines, the climate, the varietals, and all in a fun, humorous, and enjoyable way.

I only gave this 4 Stars because it seems that the DVD's have been edited for 'Political Correctness' (One cannot risk offending anyone in Britain these days, can one?). There are some parts I clearly remember from watching it on TV that have 'disappeared'. One in particular was the very funny part where James had a 'Talking Plastic Jesus' on the dashboard of the Motorhome, (does anyone else remember the song 'Plastic Jesus'?) which he would activate for some 'Divine inspiration and wisdom', which was hilarious as 'Jesus' 'spoke' corny sayings in a tinny American accent - it was so kitsch that it was 'divine'. Sadly, PJ has been PC'd!

The bottom line is, I highly recommend this 2 DVD set, despite the fact that one of the participants has been spirited away!

This is a terrific adventure. James May puts wine into plain english while Oz continues his love affair with the grape, earth and anything in a bottle. Compulsive viewing- a great advert for California.

The best way to enjoy this entertaining, educational, light hearted comedy duo on their wine adventure is to watch whilst guzzling a bottle of your favourite plonk. Oz talking wine nonsense whilst James tries in vain not to be educated too much and become a "wine ponce"! (as he puts it). Good stuff.
