Oz and James Drink to Britain - Background - Netflix

Oz Clarke is an internationally known wine expert and writer who has worked in the wine industry since 1984. He has served as the wine correspondent for the Daily Telegraph and was previously featured on the BBC Two programme Food and Drink. Following the cancellation of Food and Drink, Clarke was paired with Top Gear presenter James May to produce a series of wine and drink related programs for the BBC. In the premise of those shows, Clarke was the beverage expert with James May serving as the “wingman” who was not as knowledgeable about the subject. In December 2009, Clarke was paired with comedian Hugh Dennis, a self-described “half a bottle drinker”, to produce a similar odd couple dynamic in a one off special entitled Oz and Hugh Drink to Christmas. Following the success of that one off special a whole series was created.
