The Wine Show is back and this time were based in the glorious South of France. Matthew Goode is joined at the sun-drenched Provenal 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 worlds 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 DOr restaurant in Cannes. And our old friend Matthew Rhys is also busy. Hes back in the UK exploring gadgets old and new in the glorious setting of 17th century Berry Brothers & Rudd in Londons St Jamess. Amelia Singer and Joe find out how the local sheriff is helping with the labour shortage in Mendocino county, new presenter Jaega Wise heads to Japan to learn about Sake. Jaega also joins Joe in a very festive Munich to find out why that city can lay claim to being just as much a wine destination as a beer mecca. New wine region British Columbia, Canada gets a visit from Joe and Amelia too. The Medoc Marathon is run by Joe Fattorini with adventure runner Jamie Ramsay in fancy dress. Joe heads to Georgia to find out if this countrys claim to be the cradle of wine is true. Hes in Bosnia to find out how winemaking is healing wounds in a war torn and still fragile country and visits San Sebastian in Spain on a mission to find wines for that citys oldest gastronomic society. But Joes biggest challenge is in the first show where he heads to California to try and convince wine-hater comedian Gina Yashere (The Daily Show) that there is a wine she will like. But Gina has a surprise of her ownand Joe has 24 hours to perfect a five-minute set of wine jokes which he must perform at the toughest comedy club in Los Angeles.
