When magazine reporter Martinique Claremont returns to her family home in the northern California vineyard country, she expects to bury her brother, who died in an accident, and return to San Francisco as soon as possible. Her investigative instincts are aroused by the circumstances and her father's erratic behavior.
Her brother's friend, Lee is also suspicious of her brother's accident and draws Marti into his own search for the answers. The alliance might lead them to the truth or it might get them both killed.
“Bitter Vintage” brings the suspense of treachery, greed, and ambition along with romance and betrayal as the story unfolds against the California vineyards of the Napa-Sonoma region and the migrant workers’ struggle for fair wages in 1964.
