"Really gorgeous photography make this DVD stand out. Loved
the tour of France, especially visits to places associated
with wine like where they make cheese and the world's best
pear tart! I'm ready to pack my bags and head for the wine
regions of France. The special features are funny and informative, gave me some good information for my next trip to
the wine store. Not overly stuffy! Also really liked the music.
This is part one of a series--can't wait to see what they do with
other wine-producing regions of the world!"
Waste of time

"This slow-moving and shallow piece is more about tart tatin and Joan of Arc than about wine. What information there is about wine is often inaccurate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the only two varietals in Burgundy? How about Aligote, or some Gamay for your Bourgogne Passe-tout-grains? And the fragmented ownership of Burgundy's vineyards evolved through partible inheritance, not the variations in the soil. In sum: not much use for beginners, and no use for anyone else.
