Most Americans who know about James May (and there are frightfully too few) only know him as the slow one with bad hair on Top Gear. This is a shame and I aim to do my part to correct this sad state of affairs. Over the coming weeks, I intend to prove that James May is nothing short of a modern day Renaissance Man. I see him as a role model and truly believe the world would be a better place if more people, men especially, did the same. When ever I find myself in doubt, I ask WWJMD? What would James May do?
I was an aspirational wine ponce before I knew there was such a thing. Thankfully, James May co-hosted this wonderful, funny, and enlightening series with wine ponce extraordinaire, Oz Clarke, to give me something to aspire toward.
In the first season of Oz & James’ Big Wine Adventure, the two travel around France in a Jaguar, pitching a tent, visiting vineyards, attempting to define “terroir,” and drinking themselves silly. It’s definitely entertaining and you might even learn a thing or two about wine.
