Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure by Oz Clarke

Book Description

An inspiring introduction to French wine with a unique travel angle, tied in to a primetime 6-part BBC2 series, Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure brings us French wine made simple. Oz Clarke - award-winning writer, critic and committed Francophile - is one of the world's leading authorities on French wine. James May - overgrown boy racer , Top Gear presenter and journalist - knows nothing about wine and loathes what he calls 'wine ponces'. In Sideways style, they travel through the regions of France for 6 weeks. Oz teaches James about wine with the aim of turning him into a top sommelier, while the pair eat together, get drunk together and sometimes have to sleep together for a few nights under canvas. Divided by region, Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure cuts through the fear and snobbery that surround French wine, providing an informative, entertaining and accessible guide to the French regions and their wines. Beautifully illustrated with over 80 landscape photographs and location shots, it is full of useful information on wine-making, wine culture, regions and tips on how to seek out the best the French vineyards have to offer.
