What is the movie about?

Well, it's the Hallmark Channel, so you can probably guess that a small-town girl returns home only to find love in the most unassuming of places.

Or, it could be a story of Boutte's character, Cassandra, who is a high-powered attorney who inherits her estranged grandmother's winery in Napa Valley. She takes a sabbatical from her job to renovate the property that was the source of the fractures within her family.

Here's where the "finding unexpected love" part comes in. With the help of a handsome local by the name of Alec, she learns about the grandmother she hardly knew and is able to reconcile the past. Of course, all of this while opening herself up to a love like she's never known.
