"Andrea (Immer) Robinson is a true goddess of wine. She is a Certified Master Sommelier with at least two books under her belt. More importantly she has a very professional video presence. Add the fact that the production quality is top notch and the result is a very informative and engaging presentation.
Andrea spends a lot of time going over and tasting what she calls the big six grapes. These are Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, & Chardonnay for whites. Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are lumped together,and Shiraz/Syrah for reds. In the tasting section, She selects several bottles from all over the world to show how each grape type can take on a very different feel and style depending on where the grapes are grown and to a lesser degree, how the wines are made. She also spends a great deal of time talking about and displaying the various scents, aromas, and flavors that show both the similarities and differences in the wines.
While she never physically leaves California wine country, she does discuss and taste wines from all over the world. Andrea also enlists some big name wine gurus like long time Berringer wine maker Ed Sbragia to get their views on the wines being tasted.
This video is targeted toward those with a little wine knowledge that have been bitten by the wine bug and want to learn more. There is also something for those with a more intermediate level of wine education, especially in the sensory realm. This is a very informative, well written, and well made DVD.
This is the best all around wine video that I have seen."
