This historical romantic drama shares the compelling tale of Sobran Jodeau, an ambitious young peasant winemaker and the three loves of his life – his wife Celeste, the proudly intellectual baroness Aurora de Valday and Xas, a fallen angel who strikes up an unlikely but enduring friendship. Under his guidance Sobran is forced to fathom the nature of love and belief and in the process grapples with the sensual, the sacred and the profane – in pursuit of the perfect vintage.
