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
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!
