ITV released a trailer for its new series “The Wine Show,” which features two famous wine amateurs: “Downton Abbey’s” Matthew Goode and “The Americans'” Matthew Rhys, who jet set to Italy to develop their wine palates.

The trailer, which includes scenic pans of the Italian wine country, previews the U.K. acting duo sampling a selection of wines, which a panel of wine aficionados curates from around the world (11 countries and five continents, to be exact) and personally delivers to the pair’s Italian hills villa.

We see Goode and Rhys, who are admittedly inexperienced in the art of wine tasting, exploring local wineries and the culture behind winemaking. The actors introduce a necessary charm to the wine tasting program, which they radiate through their enchanting accents and eager outcries like “Knock me down with a feather!”

“The Wine Show” premieres on ITV this spring with 13 hourlong episodes.
