About the Show

The Wine Show is back for a second season and this time they’re based in the glorious South of France. Matthew Goode is joined at the sun-drenched Provençal villa by, actor James Purefoy. 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. Joe Fattorini leads the team of wine experts, travelling the globe. Countries visited this season include the USA, Canada, Georgia, Spain, Japan, Argentina, Bosnia and Germany.

Love the show. We have just opened a bottle, as we do for each episode, sat back and watched the 10th program, its the highlight of our week. The honesty of the guys on their comments on the many wines they try is very refreshing. it seems they have a lot of fun and my wife and I don't think there are too many opened bottles poured down the sink. I hope the crew get to share.

Have enjoyed the world travel around the winery's and glad to see our great Aussie winery's are holding their own. We have travelled and partaken of many wines around the world but you have shown us what a wonderful wine country Italy is.

We made the decision about 1/2 way through a bottle that we would in the next couple of years travel to Italy and seek out some of the wine areas in the show. We have fallen in love with the country.
We both hope that there will be ongoing seasons of the show and we have been introducing our friends to it, of course over a bottle or two.
