Argentinian wine grower paired with an almost master Sommelier is a recipe for love.

Jenna, aspiring Master Sommelier, travels home to her family winery in the Sonoma valley for her parents wedding anniversary. While there she meets Marcelo, her parents new Argentinian wine grower, who has some new ideas for their vineyard...like growing the natural way. Well traveled and easy on the ear Marcelo wins Jenna over and may have her rethinking her life plans.

I don't even drink wine but this film as part of Hallmark's drunk on wine and romance series...is winning me over to the romances at least.

This is an enjoyable romance and will appeal to all the romantics out there.

Subtle Overtones and a Smooth Finish

I went into this one without too many high hopes. Wine has become the new desert food as far as Hallmark food themes go. Also, I have not been overly impressed with the female lead, Laura Osnes. She's been OK, but just kind of "meh." I liked her in this, and I loved the male lead, Juan Pablo Di Pace. His chemistry with Laura was definitely there, although in truth he would probably would have had chemistry with a fence post.

This one centered around a female character dealing with feminist challenges. Jenna is studying for her 3rd try of passing the notoriously difficult sommelier exam to become a master sommelier. In the United States, there are only 172 of which only 28 are women. One of these real-life women has a small but important role in this movie. The background provided was interesting and educational.

Jenna is the daughter of legacy vineyard owners and a life long wine lover. She has a long term relationship with the owner of a 3 star Michelin restaurant. Her dream is to become the restaurant's sommelier. But to become qualified for that position in any super prestigious restaurant she must pass her master's exam. She goes home to her parent's vineyard to study and meets our hero, her family vineyard's innovative new Argentinian winemaker. As they spend more time together, she realizes that not only is she attracted to him, but that his attitudes and dreams are more of a match to hers than her current boyfriend's are. Her boyfriend does not respect her opinion on wine and when his master sommelier quits for a better opportunity, he does not even consider her for the position. He apparently has no faith she will pass her master test. In a bit of a twist, when she finally lays all of her feelings and dreams on the table, he changes his mind and hires her whether she passes her test or not. Despite this hiccup which separates the potential soulmates, it soon becomes clear that he still doesn't trust or respect her judgement fully. He depends too much on on outside validation such as diplomas and awards on the wine he wants in his restaurant rather than her infallible instinct and taste. Ultimately she realizes he is a follower, not a leader, and she rightly leaves him and her job. He wasn't bad, or even wrong. They just did not have the same priorities. The reunion of the two wine lovers is romantic and even touching. They are a perfect match.

It is not rare that Hallmark champions women pursuing their professional dreams over romance (as long as they can have both), but this one was handled with more sophistication and subtlety than the usual Good vs. Bad Boyfriend trope. It added some complications and real-life challenges and decisions that women are faced with when finding their best path to happiness and fulfillment.

P. S. Speaking of sophistication, I loved the new-look whimsical art of the promotional poster.
