Spoiler alert! If you haven't watched the final episode of "Downton Abbey," don't read any further.
If you were taken with Matthew Goode, the actor who played charming race car driver Henry Talbot, you'll want to know about his next project, "The Wine Show."
Goode stars with actor Matthew Rhys (known for TV's "The Americans" and "Brothers & Sisters") in 13 episodes of "The Wine Show" that will air on Britain's ITV this spring. ITV posts many of its shows online for a limited time, so it shouldn't be long before American viewers will be able to get a fix of a favorite "Downton" actor in modern-day Italy, teaching us a little something about wine as he learns himself.
I love the premise of this show. Wine novices Goode and Rhys will be based in an Italian villa, exploring wine there. A team of wine experts will bring them wine from around the world, and chefs will create food pairings. Through wine, they'll be telling stories about the world we live in today. It's about "weather, soil, grapes and people," as Rhys says in the trailer.
The more I learn about wine, the more I realize it's about people, and an entertaining, educational TV show that brings that aspect into it is definitely on my to-watch list. It doesn't hurt that it's hosted by two charming actors who look like they're having the time of their lives, either.
