If I am completely bored (which seems to not happen often as my schedule is like a bees - always trying to get as much as I can in before I pass out dead) or I am traveling, I will throw you tube on my pc or ipad on the plane - and watch Oz and James's Big Wine Adventures. IT IS HILARIOUS- you dont have to know a lot about wine to enjoy it- just the opposite, they make wine fun, educational and hilarious all at once. Most are between 8-16 minutes long and honestly, I laugh out loud most of the show.
James May is on the really cool show - TOP GEAR on BBC - its the original Top Gear - not the new tacky american version. That is the other show I watch while traveling. It keeps me up on my car talk (ha). James knows almost nothing about wine and keeps Oz on his toes every second.
Oz Clarke is a British Wine Writer who is a complete wino. He is snooty and hilarious as well in his own little way.
Together, they really accentuate each other. Give it a look at....you will be surprised.
Smoked my stuff and drank....all my wine
