If you are looking for a wine-related DVD that has real information, but is not quite so "nice, and oooh - look - they're in Burgundy today..." find a used copy of OZ Clarks DVD - it's hard to find now but blows this useless silver platter off the map!
Worse yet are the persistent mistakes made in the presentation: for example, the presenter insists on saying "meritage" as if were a French word [it's not], and one graphic actually refers to "cabarnet [sic] savignon [sic]."
Oddly, though, it seems like this isn't an outright ripoff, but merely an only halfway competent DVD thrown together by some Californians with good intentions. It's a shame it's so amateurish.
If and when Jancis Robinson's wine DVD returns to print, it's probably a much better idea to start with that.
If you are curious to find out what this wine mystery is all about, you will enjoy the high quality DVD Wine Fundamentals. After watching the DVD with my friend we would definitely say that it is Wine Fundamentals and MUCH MORE, offering in an attractive way knowledge and expertise referring to all aspects of wine - starting from the history, going through the making and the types of wine, the secrets of wine tasting and the smart tips for ordering wine, the intriguing wine terminology and the wine friendly recipes.
The professionals who created the DVD take you on a special trip which can be defined both as educational and entertaining. We surprisingly found out that our wine questions were answered to the brim, and also, our next choice and tasting of wine was completely different! Now we can savor the educated enjoyment and appreciation of wine as all of us should.
