This one is going to be fun.

According to their promotional YouTube site:

Coming to national public television in April 2011, VINE TALK is a new and unique celebrity talk show full of great stories, discussion and discovery. Each week, a different wine region from around the world serves as the inspiration for a lively and engaging dialogue. Moderated by Stanley Tucci (Big Night, Julie and Julia) and featuring an ensemble panel of well-known entertainment personalities and celebrity chefs, the show demystifies the world of wine by making it accessible and enjoyable for all.

With a commitment to being both highly entertaining and educational, VINE TALK is the perfect place to learn about the best domestic and international wines available today – whether you’re a seasoned connoisseur, budding enthusiast, or interested in learning about wine for the first time.

So far we have two videos to watch, which demonstrate the quality of this upcoming show. From these two promotional videos, I already know that I’m going to be looking forward to this one. It’s  l-o-n-g overdue.

The first clip is entitled, “VINE TALK Montage Video.”

The second video, “Behind-the-Scenes at VINE TALK,” is hosted by one of VINE TALK’s resident wine experts (and executive wine editor of Food & Wine Magazine), Ray Isle. Ray walks us through their studio, with the staff all pretty busy behind the scenes. Ray Isle takes us onto the set of the WNET studios at Lincoln Center and walks us through what goes on at VINE TALK when cameras aren’t rolling.
