Caterina Rosetta gets a fresh start for her and her child when she inherits a cottage in Italy from a long-lost grandmother where she learns of a long-buried secret that threatens to unravel everything her mother has worked for.

McMillan Palgrave

A young woman
A family secret
A devastating truth that could destroy the man she loves

Many years ago, the Rosetta family’s hard-won dreams of staking their claim in the vineyards of California came to fruition. Now high-spirited, passionate Caterina Rosetta, who has inherited both her mother’s talent for crafting the finest wines and also her indomitable will, wants nothing more than to win her mother’s approval and work at her side. But that can never happen, because Caterina is keeping a secret that could ruin her: a daughter of her own, fathered by the love of her life, who left her without explanation. Just as she feels she has nowhere to turn, Caterina discovers that she has inherited a vineyard in the Tuscan countryside in Italy, from a grandmother she’s never heard of, and she seizes the chance to start a new life for herself and her child.

But the past is not so easily outrun. In the country of her ancestors, Caterina meets the family of the father she never knew, and discovers that her mother is also hiding her own secret—a secret so devastating it threatens the future of everything her family has worked for. As an old murder comes to light, and Caterina uncovers a tragedy that may destroy the man she loves, she realizes her happiness will depend on revealing the truth of her mother’s buried past—if she has the strength to face it.

From author Jan Moran comes The Winemakers, a sweeping, romantic novel that will hold you in its grasp until the last delicious sip.

This is the story of the Rosetta family and the award winning winery they run in California. Daughter, Caterina, learns secrets from her family's past. Some of the book was very melodramatic and the evil character was just a bit overblown...other than that, it was a fair summer read.

Brilliantly written - tight plot, characters' struggles are true to time period and completely believable. Just enough trouble to be true to life. I could not put it down and read through the 400+ pages in a flash.

I loved this book and didn't want it to end! It's a beautiful love story that spans a number of decades, alternating between Italy in the 20s and Napa Valley and Italy in the 50s, with wine and winemaking linking past and present. It celebrates the strength of women and the lengths to which they will go to protect their families and warns of the devastating power of secrets, all the while providing a good lesson on the grape's journey from vine to wine. An absolutely wonderful read!
