Watch John Cleese’s ‘Wine for the Confused’

John Cleese puts his spin on wines and wine making.  This 43 minute video, with commercials,  is a beginner’s guide to enjoying wine.  Mr. Cleese  demystifies the wine tasting and buying experience, beginning with a tasting party at his home and ending with a visit to some wine merchants.  He manages to get in some Monty Python stories and visit some wineries in the middle.  Check it out.  www.hulu.com/watch/79439/wine-for-the-​confused.  The most astonishing thing I learned?  Half of his friends at his tasting could not determine the difference between red and white wine.  No matter though, Mr. Cleese seemed similarly astonished.  It is a great story about learning to enjoy wine and not be bullied by the ‘wine snobs’.
