MATCHING WINE WITH CARS
Oz and James' Big Wine Adventures (Prime Sundays, 7PM) is a wine programme with a difference. That difference is fun.
I'm not saying the programme is great as it is full of flaws, but what wine oriented programmes and films are not (Sideways with its central theme of disparaging Merlot in favour of Pinot Noir ended with a tribute to Chateau Cheval Blanc which is almost 50% Merlot - or was that an in-joke?).
Tonights episode had a fun challenge (anathema to wine snobs) of matching a car to a wine. This was great and takes the piss whilst still making some sense (e.g. matching a Champagne to a classic Jaguar).
Well done OJBWA
