Keith Floyd takes a rest from his kitchen and dedicates some time to his favourite hobby: Wine. Having hired a camper-van for the summer he sets off to explore the wine regions of France. But Keith is also interested in seeing the local beauty spots, learning the history, meeting the people, eating the local produce, and above all, tasting the wine.
