Overview

When Isabelle took a chance and eloped with Leon Feininger, her true love, she hadn t stopped to consider what would happen next. Winter on his family s isolated vineyard proves tougher than she expected, and Isabelle finds herself daydreaming, envisioning the wines she and Leon will make when they have their own land.

An unexpected inheritance opens a door for the newlyweds Leon s uncle has left them a vineyard, and in champagne country no less! But all is not as it seems. The decrepit estate has very little staff to help, and Isabelle cannot focus her husband s efforts on the farm. She soon decides to seize the opportunity to run the vineyard herself. Like her friends Clara and Josephine, she can learn anything she needs to face a new challenge. And with their help, she will even take on the fierce local competition, with generations of wine-making history tying them to the land she s just learning to toil.

Can Isabelle s passion and perseverance bring Feininger champagne to the world? Will life with Leon become the happily ever after she s always dreamed of?
