The Wine Show is back for a second season and this time we’re based in the glorious South of France. Matthew Goode (The Crown, The Goode Wife, Roots, Matchpoint) is joined at the sun-drenched Provençal villa by, actor James Purefoy (Rome, The Following, Altered Carbon, Hap and Leonard).
In addition to tasting the wines brought back from around the globe, they are tasked by Joe Fattorini to find a case of wine to match a six course French lunch cooked by Michelin starred 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…
Matthew and James journey all over southern France to find their wines. Their mission involves kayaking and caving in the Ardeche, rounding up bulls on horseback in the Camargue, baking in Lyon and even cooking their own lunch in the sweltering kitchens of the legendary Palme D’Or restaurant in Cannes.
And our old friend Matthew Rhys (The Americans, Brothers and Sisters, Burnt, The Papers) is also busy. He’s back in the UK exploring gadgets old and new in the glorious setting of 17 th century Berry Brothers & Rudd in London’s St James’s.
