The world of comedy was enriched by John Cleese through his various works in MONTY PYTHON, FAWLTY TOWERS, and beyond. Here, Cleese turns his attention to one of his other pleasures in life: wine. Many people love wine, but gaining a greater understanding of how to drink it, what to buy, what's good, and what's bad can cause confusion. Fortunately Cleese makes the whole process easier to swallow in this informative and entertaining guide to wine, which was originally broadcast on the Food Network.
