Jancis Robinson's Wine Course
See here for details of how you can preview extracts from this award-winning series on YouTube
This, to my knowledge, was the world's first wine DVD. It's a beautifully filmed tour of the world of wine presented and written by me and based on dozens of stunning locations in four continents. Each of the ten half-hour programmes is centred on a major grape variety or theme but provides a complete wine education including how wine is made, tasted, stored and enjoyed.
The series won me the overall Glenfiddich Trophy for food and drink communicators in 1995, the UK Wine Guild top award in 1996, and a coveted James Beard Award in the US in 1997.
A big boxed set suitable for the US is available from Amazon.com. The two-disc PAL version of the DVD shown here is available from Amazon.co.uk. In continental Europe it is distributed by B-motion of Holland.

Sideways - the DVD
The very funny buddy movie about two guys touring Central Coast wine country in search of, respectively, sex and Pinot Noir. The focus is very much sharper than this blurred image suggests.
Mondovino - the DVD
Jonathan Nossiter's controversial documentary about the globalisation of the world of wine.
Jancis Robinson on video
Reflecting the evolving nature of the world, my once-extensive collection of videos is now effectively no longer extant, other than at the most obscure car boot and yard sales. RIP.
