UNDER THE VINES combined turkeys, menopause, frosty nights, book clubs, and budding relationships, all in the recent installments of this sweet, humorous series. Life is moving forward at incredible speed for the entire ensemble.ย 

This rom/com soap is quirky, to say the least. It shares the beauty and pacing of living in New Zealand. Beautiful scenery and well-chosen locations. What I like about this show is the spirit of community who are willing to lend a helping hand whenever necessary. UNDER THE VINES makes me smile and feel good about where our world is headed. Even if there is drama over an incident, viewers know it will all be worked out. Kudos to the writers for creating moments of hope and endless possibilities. The overall theme is always for us to get on with itโ€ฆpush throughโ€ฆno matter what. These are great mantras to live by every day outside of screen time.ย 

UNDER THE VINES teaches audiences a great deal about the world of winemaking and tasting. It is a fast-paced, entertaining hour with characters I would love to meet in real life, preferably over a bottle of their best wine. It is available to stream on AMAZON PRIME.ย
