The hit podcast A Glass With… will return for an eighth series this autumn, in partnership with the UK’s number one specialist wine retailer, Majestic Wine.
A Glass With… is the podcast that drinks with the stars, presented by wine critic and TV personality Olly Smith, and produced by Richard Hemming MW. Since launching in 2017, it has reached an audience of over 140,000 across the globe through its combination of wine insight and celebrity chat. Each episode of the podcast features a celebrity guest talking about their lives, interests and love of wines (or beers and spirits) over a specially chosen bottle.
With Majestic providing the wines for the latest series, Smith and Hemming are promising some big names when it comes to uncovering the favourite tipples of stars from across entertainment, arts and food. Guests already confirmed for the new series include TV chef Ainsley Harriott, comedian Miles Jupp and singer-songwriter James Bay.
“We’re absolutely delighted with the roster of names lined up for the new series,” explains Olly Smith. “James Bay tells us about the wine he discovered while recording his latest album in Nashville, while Miles Jupp admits to being obsessed with the translucence of Pinot Noir. Those sorts of anecdotes are at the heart of A Glass With … – and we’re thrilled to continue them into our eighth series. It’s amazing to see the support which continues to follow the podcast. We feel sure that listeners, both new and old, will really enjoy the eclectic mix of celebrity scoops, drinks-based chat and generally jollity we’ve got in store!”.
Lovers of the show will be able to purchase some of the wines featured in any one of Majestic’s 200 stores nationwide – and taste along with both Olly and the featured guest each week.
“A Glass With… is a podcast we’ve long enjoyed at Majestic, and I know many of our customers do too, so we’re absolutely delighted to be on board for the latest series!” explains John Colley, CEO at Majestic.
“The approachable way that Olly chats to his guests, the stories and insights which are brought to life around the wines, and the interactive and lively nature of the show makes it an absolute ideal fit for Majestic. We can’t wait for everyone to hear the finished series – and we’re sure that many of our customers will really enjoy hearing the views of both Olly and his guests on some of our fantastic wines too”.
