Delivers exactly what you expect: everything a beginner needs to know about wine,
This review is from: Wine for Dummies (DVD)
I really really really really enjoyed this DVD and recommend it to anyone who loves to drink wine and has come to the realization that there is more to wine than just being able to distinguish between white and red. It's not a connoisseur's guide to wine, it's "Wine for Dummies", people like me, who are enthusiasts, not snobs. It goes over all the basics any ambitious "wino" needs to know: pouring, smelling, savoring, storing, pairing, wines from different countries and their characteristics, grape varietals... a truly thorough presentation packed with tons of useful tips.
It's like taking a class because we only hear the sommelier speaking to us for the entire duration, but his approach is very friendly, clear, easy to understand, and not at all pretentious.
