What would you do if the Englishman sent to ruin your vineyards ended up stealing your heart?

Portugal, 1870

A woman desperate to save her vineyards...
Julia Costa is the best winemaker in the Douro. After her late husband burdened her lands with debt, she vows to defend her legacy by any means necessary.

The Englishman sent to uncover her secrets...

A meeting of two cultures...
Nothing prepared Griffin for the headstrong winemaker. She tempts him to enjoy Portugal's vibrant tastes and threatens his carefully constructed plans. The arrogant Englishman arrived at Julia's lands believing himself entitled to everything, including her heart. But how can she resist an attraction headier than a vintage?

An enemy too powerful to fight alone...
When a mysterious plague decimates Europe's vineyards, Griffin and Julia struggle to find a cure. They must compromise to face this new threat... or lose everything. Will they allow cultural differences to separate them, or will they fight for the love of a lifetime?
