    "Doesn't teach you much about wine"

    The broadcaster speaks in a really fast british accent so you are forced to pay close attention to catch everything he is saying. The first 10 minutes tell you a little about what's involved with tasting wine the rest isn't so relevant to those wanting to learn about wine.

    "Rather useless."

    First, they seem to have selected a nearly random selection of things to discuss. Rieslings, Chardonnays, and then Bulgarian wine. His descriptions are not terribly useful or comprehensible (comparing a good riesling to petrol?). Skip this. It is simply not worth the time. It does not provide enough data for the expert or a useful structure for the beginner.

    "Great for someone starting out"

    This was very short audio book for a beginners guide. I felt it wasnt worth the space on my ipod.
