Wine lovers can join a virtual tasting session with New Zealand actor Sam Neill on Thursday, to sample rare vintages and talk about life, alcohol and the extraordinary times the world is experiencing.

The 72-year-old star and vineyard owner is taking part in a live class on YouTube at 6pm AEST on May 14, giving fans the chance to ask burning questions while drinking a glass of their favourite tipple.

The session will be broadcast in real-time on wine retailer Langton's YouTube channel, then uploaded to the brand's website for anyone who misses the recording.

A producer and connoisseur of fine wine, Sam runs Two Paddocks, an organic vineyard in Central Otago on New Zealand's South Island which opened in 1993 and is now renowned for its Pinot Noir, a lightly spiced, flavoursome red wine.

His upcoming session will be the fourth virtual tasting Langton's has run since mid-April, as the company finds new ways to connect with customers while respecting the limitations of social distancing.

Langton's master of wine Ned Goodwin promises the tasting will be fun, informative and lighthearted.

'I've met Sam on the wine circuit before, and I'm looking forward to having a relaxed, engaging and educational chat with him - not without some antics, I'm sure,' he said in a statement on Tuesday.

A spokesperson for the Kiwi actor said he is eager to talk about life, wine, and anything else that interests fans who tune in on Thursday.

A natural entertainer, Sam has been brightening the days of his 226,000 Instagram followers by reading poetry, playing the ukulele and even delving into deep conversations with his garden gnomes in short videos since lockdown began on March 23.

The star, who shot to stardom after playing Dr. Alan Grant in Jurassic Park in 1993, has since starred in popular television series including Rick and Morty, The Tudors and Peaky Blinders.

Sam today revealed that production on Jurassic World 3, the third installment of the Jurassic Park franchise, ground to a halt just two weeks into filming in London after coronavirus swamped Europe in early March.

He believes filming should be relocated to Australia or New Zealand, where restrictions are gradually being lifted.

'I'd like to think that maybe we can start or restart in this part of the world,' he said during an interview with Nova 96.9's Fitzy & Wippa.
