It is April 1622, and Magdalena Lorca is newly arrived at the Villa Sant’Angelo in eastern Spain. She is maid and chaperon to Senorita Elena de Cellorigo-Borja who has traveled from Seville to meet her Valencian family.
As Magdalena is integrated into the household staff, she gradually gets to familiarize with the surroundings. The Estates located near the village of Cullera are extensive and boast formidable orchards of citrus and stone fruits, but the family’s pride is their vineyards.
When Magdalena meets the wine-master, Joquim Alvares, for the first time their mutual attraction is immediate and develops into a strong friendship.
But will Elena’s impetuousness and selfish attitude towards her maidservant threaten to jeopardize any chance of romance for the young woman?
The only hope Joquim and Magdalena have will depend on whether Elena’s change in circumstance causes her to mellow when she is courted by the Estate’s heir.
