Plot Synopsis

From a beautiful villa in the Italian countryside, Matthew Goode and Matthew Rhys set off on a new challenge in every episode of Season 1, exploring different parts of Italy, uncovering some of the best wines the country has to offer, and telling the stories that surround them. They look behind the labels on all kinds of bottles, giving viewers new information about different wines, from those which people drink every day, to the really special, exclusive fine wines. Passionate wine experts Joe Fattorini and Amelia Singer skillfully guide the Matthews along the way and also travel to 11 countries on five continents to bring back some exceptional bottles. Joe finds himself in a tight spot in the Loire when he discovers how one winemaker helped the French Resistance during WW2. Viewers also follow him to Chile's Maule Valley to find out how the vineyards coped when they were at the epicenter of the devastating 2010 earthquake. Joe also heads to Shanghai for some very special research. Amelia meanwhile visits Australia to explore the Mornington Peninsula and discovers the German roots of the Barossa Valley. Delivered with warmth and humor, this new look at wine is paired with expert advice, fantastic food and tantalizing travelogue, making it an ideal show to enjoy with a glass or two of something special. THE WINE SHOW had its U.S. linear television debut on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at 10pm ET on Ovation.
