Maybe it’s because last night was the season finale of Cougar Town and we’re already missing Big Carl (and Big Komo), but just seeing the number of large wine glasses used on Stanley Tucci’s PBS chat show Vine Talk makes us happy. Watch an exclusive clip from the upcoming episode “Polishing Off Pinots from Oregon” below. In honor of guest Steve Buscemi, star of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, the conversation turns to prohibition and how some Napa Valley wineries survived it. Educational! The other guests joining Tucci, wine host Ray Isle (wine editor for Food & Wine magazine), and wine expert Stephanie Caraway in this episode are restauranteur Joe Bastianich and actress Emily Bergl (Desperate Housewives). Check your local listings. The episode begins airing on certain PBS stations tonight.
