When Ari Adams journeys to Oregon's wine country with best pal Jane Frank, she envisions sipping pinot noir on a gorgeous deck and staring at the sunsets across the Willamette Valley.
But then they arrive at Sisters Cellars only to find that the sommelier, Dion Demopolous, has been murdered. Dion had been favored to win the Master Sommelier title at the world's most prestigious wine competition, and now more than a few people are happy to see him gone.
Mina Sommer, Jane's childhood friend and the owner of Sisters Cellars, asks Ari to investigate. Ari's romantic assumptions are quickly shattered as she delves into the cutthroat world of winemaking--where suspicion is routine, reputation is coveted, and passion for the drink of goddesses and queens is just another motive for murder.
