This instructional DVD is great for both beginners who are starting from scratch as well as those who have some knowledge of wine. The program is divided into 2 parts. Instructor Richard Berger teaches viewers the basics about different types of wines and winemaking regions, how to read a wine label, how to order wine in a restaurant, and how to pair wine with food. In the second part, Berger has a conversation with a winemaker about grapes and making wine, a discussion with the owner of a wine shop about French wine, and shows how to cook peppercorn steak. Berger chats with Harry Orlove of the Cheap Wine Club.
