From their beautiful new villa in France, Purefoy and Goode set off on a new challenge in every episode, uncovering some of the best wines in the world, and telling the stories that surround them.

Season Two of The Wine Show will air on Ovation starting Thursday, November 15th at 10pm ET / 7pm PT.
In addition to tasting the wines brought back from around the globe, Purefoy and Goode are tasked by wine expert 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 world’s most influential wine critic, decides which wines make it to the Wine Show Case. And she is taking no prisoners. Wine expert Amelia Singer returns and sommelier Jaega Wise joins the series. Countries visited this season include the USA, Canada, Georgia, Spain, Japan, Argentina, Bosnia and Germany.”
