Jancis Robinson's Wine Course gives us a basic understanding of wine: how it is made, how to appreciate it, how to properly store, open, and drink it. Each course is centred on a major grape variety with other important wine topics woven in where appropriate. Robinson points out that wine should not be a serious subject, that its point is to provide pleasure.
While the five part wine course is more than enough reason to watch this collection, the cinematography is spectacular, beautifully highlighting the wine-growing regions of the world; from Australia to Chile to Oregon to Europe. This collection is for all wine enthusiasts; from those who could use some help in choosing from a wine list to the wine expert.
