LOVE IN THE VINES. A romantic feast of food, wine, love and betrayal.
Like a great wine, love begins in the vines. Betrayal begins in the heart of a marriage.

Taking the plunge from the glamorous world of advertising to the intoxicating world of wine, Matt’s dream of becoming a gifted winemaker had come true. Leaving behind the city lights, casual late night flings, and the shattered remains of his marriage, all Matt yearned for was a peaceful life spent among the fruit laden vines sipping his own award winning wines.

He was letting me know his lunch was over and he’d be home within the hour.
