A new show is coming to ITV and based on the trailer it is making millions of people’s fantasies come true — drinking wine in an Italian villa with actors Matthew Goode (“Downton Abbey,” “The Good Wife”) and Matthew Rhys (“The Americans,” “Brothers and Sisters”).

“The Wine Show” appears to be wine experts bringing wine to the Matthews and them drinking it, basically. It will probably be very educational and a lot of fun to watch.

“You might be wondering what two actors are doing on a show about wine. We’re going to be looking behind the labels on all kinds of bottles. From the wine we enjoy every day to our dinner to the really, really fine stuff,” says Rhys’ voice over.

Goode adds, “We’ll be exploring stories that not only tell us about wine but about the world we live in today. We’re going to show you there’s wine out there for everyone and trying something different is the best way to understand more about this marvelous drink.”

This marvelous 13-episode series premieres spring 2016 on ITV.
