Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A combination quiz show and travelogue, the British Wine Hunt permitted its contestants to play games in famous wine regions throughout the world. Each episode featured two teams of two amateur wine connoisseurs, who answered questions relating to the proper creation, storing, and usage of the "juice of the grape." The highest scorer was given the opportunity to increase his or her cash earnings by participating in a blind taste test of three vintage wines. Hosted by Matthew Jukes, Wine Hunt premiered in 1998.
