Premieres Saturday, August 12 at 9 PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel
The film reunites Rachael Leigh Cook (“Perception”) and Brendan Penny (“Motive”) who reprise their roles as Frankie Baldwin and Nate DeLuca. The movie will premiere during Hallmark Channel’s annual “Summer Nights” programming event, featuring four new, original movie premieres celebrating the fun and carefree days of summer. The movie is the follow up to the successful “Autumn in the Vineyard,” and continues the romance between Frankie Baldwin (Cook) and Nate DeLuca (Penny).
Three seasons have passed since Frankie and Nate became partners in love and winemaking as co-owners of Sorrento Farms in Napa Valley. Summer finds them preparing to bottle their first vintage, just in time for Taste of St. Madeleine, a splashy food-and-wine event that draws top wine critics as well as huge crowds. A successful showing at Taste of St. Madeleine could launch Sorrento into the big time and secure its immediate financial future.
“We are excited to have Rachael and Brendan back in the vineyard for this story that is ultimately about making dreams come true,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity. “’Summer in the Vineyard’ is a wonderful addition to our ‘Summer Nights’ programming that includes four all new, original movies celebrating the fun of the season.”
