Vintage - Synopsis
Three women who dare to make it in a man’s world. One sparkling prize.
Madeleine Arsenault has prepared for this moment all her life. She is determined to rescue the beloved family chateau and prove she’s got what it takes to run the most successful champagne house in France.
Former supermodel Christina Morgan knows she hasn’t got what it takes. But she’s sure as hell not going to show it. And with the help of her friends, she’ll turn her ex-husband’s hobby Californian vineyard into a major player.
British cleaning-girl Kelly Elson would rather drink vodka and coke than champagne. Then she inherits a vineyard in Sussex and suddenly she’s thirsty for success.
Watching over them all is Frenchman Mathieu Randon, head of luxury goods conglomerate Domaine Randon. Super-rich. Seductive. And a sociopath.
In competing to produce the world’s best sparkling wine, the three women are swept into a world of feuds, back-stabbing, sabotage and seduction. Have they got what it takes to survive?
An empty champagne bottle lay on the floor of room 512. A half-eaten box of Belgian chocolates scattered its contents to the left of the wastebasket. A dozen red roses dripped dying petals onto the dressing table. Somebody had gone to a great deal of effort to effect a seduction but Kelly Elson felt stiff as a board and half as affectionate beneath her companion in the big double bed.
‘That… was… brilliant…’ Daniel sighed as he rolled onto his side.
Kelly jumped up from the bed and went in search of a tissue.
‘Want me to do anything for you?’ Daniel asked as she returned from the bathroom with a fistful of toilet paper.
‘You don’t need to,’ said Kelly.
‘Good.’ Daniel lay back against the pillows looking smug. He reached out and gave one of her nipples a tweak.
Kelly fought the urge to punch him.
