Storyline

John Clease cruises around Santa Barbara and nearby wine country and channelling knowledge of wine to the viewer. IMO as this is an informational movie it is no spoiler to tell you he concludes, after exposing us to what it is that makes a wine both delicious and "good" with a well developed palate, with fermented grapes much as mist things..... you like what you like. It is subjective. This film is "rad" to use my socal surf vernacular. It is no flying circus but a great pleasure to see Mr Cleese as a whine professor.......Would make a nice skit white wine whining. Bacus rock us. Follow this with the amazing documentary about one wine forgery mastercon titled Sour Grapes. Wowzers! Salud! Written by wyocoyote

great show - not a comedy
29 September 2006 | by wph22840See all my reviews

This show is a great low key introduction to wine, wine making and wine tasting. It isn't meant to be a comedy, although with John Cleese how could you not laugh occasionally. The descriptions and the information are all geared toward novices at wine tasting, so it does keep things on a rather simple but enjoyable level. I plan to use this as the ice breaker at a wine tasting party...John's party featured in the show inspired me to have a blind tasting too.

Of particular interest to me were the segments which talked about learning to describe the flavors, scents, textures and other qualities of wines you like or don't like in a common vocabulary.

Very good show to watch...the title says it all...
