Storyline

When Napa valley wine estate 'Chateau Meroux' owner jerry dies, he leaves it all unexpectedly to his long-estranged, presumably neglected daughter Wendy, who totally depends on her San Francisco roommate Jennifer. They visit it, and soon fall in love with Chris, the son and initially spy of rival neighbor and candidate-buyer Nathan, viz. Romario, the romantic assistant of ambition-consumed French wine-maker Francois. When Wendy decides to stay and run it, despite scary debts, Chris actually helps them, but Nathan stops at nothing.

Cute and not that bad at all
14 January 2014 | by QuirkyCatSee all my reviews

Having read very mixed reviews, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. So, in the end, I decided that the only way to find out is to go ahead and watch it. I got the movie and to be honest, was expecting a huge disaster (I guess negative reviews always dominate). I've just finished watching and so glad I did. The acting wasn't bad, yes, not a Hollywood blockbuster, but who always needs those movies. It is a lot, and I really mean a lot, better than many movies out there. I really was impressed. Well done to the actors and director - it could have been a bland, movie with stiff acting and poor dialog, no feeling, but it turned out really well. And I even felt for the characters. So, all-in-all, a cute little movie that I'm really glad I watched and will watch again.
