In the public television series VINE TALK, actor-writer-director Stanley Tucci leads a wine-tasting and a lively and engaging conversation among an eclectic group of chefs and celebrities, including John Lithgow, Nora Ephron, Chef Jonathan Waxman, Nathan Lane, Chef Lidia Bastianich, Mario Cantone, Jennifer Coolidge, Chef Steven Raichlen, Ron Darling, Gay Talese, Cheyenne Jackson, Steve Buscemi, Aidan Quinn, Chef Marcus Samuelsson, Patricia Clarkson, Rosie Perez, Zachary Quinto, Tommy Tune and Gail Simmons. This ever-changing panel sniffs, swirls and sips wines while discussing wine, food and culture. Then, they blindly pick their favorite wine and compare their choice with that of the studio audience. Food & Wine executive wine editor Ray Isle, along with a rotating group of experienced sommeliers, take turns introducing the names, labels, origins and retail price-points of varietals, and answering celebrity and studio audience questions.
