In an earlier post I mentioned John Cleese's wine program, Wine for the Confused. I got a chance to watch the program the other day. I enjoyed it very much. John Cleese was in a jolly good mood and he invited his friends to test wines in different ways:

  • Describe the wines with a few words.
  • Blind taste, deciding if it was red or white wine.
  • Putting a price tag, $5 - 200.

He went to different vineyards and tested wine from six different grapes:

  1. Riesling
  2. Sauvignon Blanc
  3. Chardonnay
  4. Pinot Noir
  5. Merlot
  6. Cabernet Sauvignon
Have you been to the following places in California?

To end this post with a twist, read a story on how a small Scottish hotel and the holy grape saved John Cleese's life.
