The Wine Show

Series 1 - Episode 1



Connoisseurs and those who just "know what they like" are equally catered for on this highly recommended new series, where presenters Matthew Goode and Matthew Rhys are as affable as the booze is quaffable.

In the shadow of Table Mountain, man with a vin Joe Fattorini (or Obi-Wine Kenobi, as he's dubbed) charts the history of South Africa's Vin de Constance, apparently a favourite of Van Gogh's. "Rhysy" has a phobia of sweet wine, but even he's impressed. "It's not like being bludgeoned over the head with a bag of Tate and Lyle," he enthuses. Faint praise indeed.

It's a thirsty watch, so get a bottle in. Looks like this series could have legs.


Actors Matthew Goode and Matthew Rhys present a guide to wine from an Italian villa. They attend a barrel race in Tuscany, and are joined by chef Brad McDonald.
