Hollywood takes another shot at wine

There's a new wine show in the works apparently, perhaps following on the tradition of John Cleese's Wine For The Confused. In this latest attempt to translate the mystery and fun of wine to accessible sound bites for viewers everywhere, we've got Jason Priestly wandering around Napa and Sonoma drinking and eating with a co-host and commentator in tow.

Apparently Priestly, one of the teen heart-throbs who made a name for himself on the infamous Beverly Hills 90210, is a big time wine collector and drinker.

If anyone knows how to get a hold of a copy of this show on tape or disc for me to check out, I'll happily pay for the disc and the shipping.

UPDATE: Looks like I'm late to the train on this one. Tom over at Fermentations already made note of this and has a little more background on Priestly and his wine drinking habits.

Check out my blog for more info about Priestly's visits for his wine show. He recently visited Walla Walla, Washington wine valley.
