The most renowned and recognized wine television program broadcast in more than 100 countries, a global audience estimated at more than 30 million people and an average value of over 7 million euros, aims to dedicate the 2020 season to Portugal, with recordings scheduled for the second half of this year 2019. The project is being worked by Revista de Vinhos in partnership with Infinity Creative Media.

The great news was publicly announced on February 1, at Oporto Customs House, during the 22nd edition of the “Best of the Year” awards from the Revista de Vinhos. Joe Fattorini, a wine expert and one of the most popular and renowned journalists, radio and television presenters on wine, was on stage to detail the program and explain what they intend to make known to the world with the Portuguese season.

“The Wine Show” will follow the successful editorial line defined for the series, starting from wine to Portuguese culture and gastronomy, promoting the country as one of the main producers of the world of wine and a tourist destination of excellence.

There will be seven one-hour episodes presented by Joe Fattorini, Amelia Singer and Jancis Robinson and starring actors Mathew Goode and Mathew Rhys, who from a host city and emblematic location will travel through Portugal and will meet the main protagonists of the vine and wine, revealing stories and, from them, the Portuguese wines.

The last episode will be a special “Wine and Gastronomy” to work on Portuguese products, with Portuguese chefs presenting the diversity of the country’s offer. The novelty of the season will be brought by the rest of the team, with Joe Fattorini, Amelia Singer and Jancis Robinson to travel around the world looking for wines that they will bring to Portugal, where they will be commented and proven. Around the program will be worked a set of videos and promotional materials for dissemination in social networks and the press, with a return estimated at more than half a million euros.

“The realization of this project, whose viability depends on the guarantee of support by public and private entities linked to the wine and tourism sectors, guarantees a worldwide visibility and an impact with immediate and extremely positive results from the point of view of communication, promotion and image of Portuguese wines and their affirmation in global terms, “says the director of the Wine Magazine, Nuno Pires.

”‘The Wine Show’ is a unique opportunity for all partners. From the US to Australia, through China and Japan, Brazil and all of Latin America, the United Kingdom, Russia and all of Europe, as well as other places farther afield, our vast audience of wine connoisseurs and travel enthusiasts will surely fall in love with Portugal. With this season we intend to put Portugal at the top of the wish list of all travellers and wine lovers, “said Joe Fattorini.

Other reports of this announcement mention that James Purefoy will also be in Season 3.

The initial response to this movie showing at Sundance seems positive.  A full review has been added to the press archive.  Screendaily highlighted Matthew’s performance as journalist Peter Beaumont: –

Official Secrets spends much of its first half focusing on the reporters’ investigation into this leak, and Smith and Goode make an enjoyable onscreen combo.

Matthew plays Guardian journalist Peter Beaumont in Official Secrets and the movie premieres today at Sundance.  Information from Rotten Tomatoes: –

Director: Gavin Hood

Screenwriters: Gregory Bernstein, Sara Bernstein

Cast: Keira Knightley, Matt Smith, Ralph Fiennes, Matthew Goode, Rhys Ifans

Another post-9/11 tale, this one set across the pond. Official Secrets is the true story of British Intelligence whistleblower Katharine Gun, who leaked a top-secret NSA memo exposing an illegal spying operation against members of the UN Security Council ahead of the Iraq War.

Why we want to see it: The Doctor, Voldemort, Ozymandias, and Elizabeth Bennett walk into a political thriller… Yes, this cast is stacked with Oscar-caliber British actors. Some have dubbed the real-life events the film is based on as the case of the ‘British Edward Snowden’ – we hope Hood’s film is more like the Oscar-winning documentary Citizenfour than Oliver Stone’s Razzie-nominated Snowden
