WE RECOMMEND: “THE WINE SHOW”

 

Arriving stateside on Hulu over this past Summer, you may have heard about Britain’s “The Wine Show”. In it, actors Matthew Goode (“Downton Abbey”, “Watchmen”) and Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”, “Brothers & Sisters”) spend time in an Italian villa tasting and learning about wine from expert Joe Fattorini and via field segments with presenter Amelia Singer. Mixing lessons on winemaking, history, tasting, storage, pairing and just about anything else wine-related you can think of, there is much to learn here. But this is not some stodgy documentary. The 2 Matthews have an endearing camaraderie that makes watching them on their Italian adventure imminently enjoyable, if not leaving you somewhat envious of the experience. Joe ably joins in their fun while remaining informative, and often gets the fun task of demonstrating some pretty cool wine gadgets and technology (including a few that are available for sale on our site). Amelia doesn’t get to have very much interaction with the rest of the cast, but is a vivacious addition to the show who gets to visit some pretty cool places around the world. Whether you’re a serious oenophile or just starting on your own journey into the world of wine, this is a fun, entertaining and informative show that you owe it to yourself to check out.
