When lonely vigneron Clementine Peine’s curmudgeonly papa meets his maker one frosty night, all he leaves behind is a mountain of debt, a cellar of champagne and a legacy of bitterness and betrayal. But at least with him out of the way, Clementine has a shot at restoring the reputation of the family’s once-famous Champagne House. Enter her long-lost sister, the obnoxious Mathilde, demanding her share of the inheritance, followed by Sophie, a scruffy urchin from Paris, also rightfully claiming her cut. But what hope is there for the House of Peine when all these lost souls have in common is a father who never loved them? Or did he? A heart-warming story of bubbling and blending set among the vines and wines of Champagne.
