"The Wine Show"
Season Premiere Thursday, November 15 at 10 PM ET on Ovation
Based in their beautiful new villa in France, actor James Purefoy (Hap and Leonard, Altered Carbon) joins Matthew Goode (The Crown, Downton Abbey) in the second season of The Wine Show. Purefoy and Goode set off on a new challenge in every episode, uncovering some of the best wines in the world, and telling the stories that surround them. Back in the UK, Matthew Rhys (The Americans) is in glamorous and historic St James’s in London on his quest to find gadgets old and new.
In addition to tasting the wines brought back from around the globe, Purefoy and Goode are tasked by wine expert Joe Fattorini to find a case of wine to match a six-course French lunch cooked by Michelin-star chef Stephane Reynaud. But this year, Joe is not judging. Jancis Robinson, the world’s most influential wine critic, decides which wines make it to The Wine Show Case--and she is taking no prisoners. Wine expert Amelia Singer returns and sommelier Jaega Wise joins the show. The cast travels the United States, Canada, Georgia, Spain, Japan, Argentina, Bosnia, and Germany.
