A sweetly romantic/comedic film that also explores the long and proud history of the original Spanish-Mexican settlers in California. While the plot is somewhat predictable and a young Keanu Reeves shows his impassive delivery style, he does a good job of playing an unsettled WWII hero searching for his place in the world. Aitana Sanchez-Gijon is the pregnant, spirited winemaker's daughter who has one foot in the Old World, one foot in the New, while Giancarlo Giannini is her macho, controlling dad, deeply suspicious of the gringo newcomer. The Napa and Sonoma valley vineyards are picturesque backgrounds. Note: occasional Spanish with English subtitles.

Keanu is so good looking; I just fell in love with his character. Great movie.

Keanu Reeves actually expresses himself as a human being in this flick. A nice change from his usual robotic, monotonous acting style.

Passion, love, honor and wine make for a good life and a great movie! Admittedly, Keanu seems out of place as a romantic lead, but oddly enough, it works in this movie. There is palpable chemistry between him and Victoria, played by the wholesome, yet sultry Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, which makes for some of the most erotic scenes without nudity ever made for the big screen. I ADORED Anthony Quinn as the grandfather. Have a glass of good, robust red wine and a hanky at the ready - you will definitely be wanting both by the end.
