East of Paris in the sun-drenched vineyards of northern France lies the famous champagne house Maison Chauveau. But behind the extravagant exterior of the grand house is a world of secrets.
1940: When young Ines married into the famed Chauveau family she dreamed of working alongside her husband and raising their beautiful children. But with German occupation comes a life of fear: for herself, for the husband who has joined the Resistance and for Celine, the Jewish wife of their chief vintner. As the Nazis march ever closer Ines will be faced with a terrible choice.
2019: Liv Kent has lost everything: her job, her husband and the family she thought they were building. Alone and adrift she leaps at the chance to join her eccentric grandmother on a trip to Champagne. But it's not long before past and present collide, and in a desperate search for the truth, Liv is led straight to the Maison Chauveau.
