Hollywood actor Stanley Tucci (Julie & Julia; The Terminal;The Lovely Bones) is tapped to be the host of a new American TV show centered around wine. Called Vine Talk, the show will be broadcast from April on the USA’s public broadcasting network, PBS. Featuring celebrities like Patricia Clarkson and Nathan Lane, star chefs like Daniel Boulud and various wine experts, the format will be a roundtable discussion coupled with a wine tasting.
Every week a different wine region from around the world will serve as a theme for the panel discussion. Vine Talk will aim to be lighthearted but educational, and strive to demystify the world of wine.
Here is a short montage video of the show.
