Complete Wine Course with Jancis Robinson by Flatiron Mobile

Description

Take a complete wine course with world renowned wine expert Jancis Robinson. Learn about wine tasting, fermentation, harvesting, weather, wine brokers & merchants, the wine industry, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Champagne and distinctive wines. All while traveling the world.

Jancis Robinson gives us a basic understanding of wine: how it is made, how to appreciate it, how to properly store, open, and drink it and how to best pair food and wine. Robinson is an expert in the field, editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine, as well as a columnist for the Wine Spectator. This application is not just about the drink; just as interesting is her look into the people behind the wines. Each subject introduces a new locale and the people who cultivate the grapes and turn them into nectar. Robinson never speaks down to her viewer--she points out that wine should not be a serious subject, that its point is to provide pleasure--although she is frequently a bit condescending to the vintners in her interviews, making the show all the more amusing. Some of the best moments occur when she offers a winemaker a taste of the competitor's wine--somehow they never think it is quite up their own standards. She revels in revealing the scandals and failures of the wine world, providing a gossipy feel.
