Abstract

This is an unusual love story of a man and the vineyard that should have been his inheritance. Ernest Diaz has sacrificed everything, even his marriage, to his dream of buying back Fir Hills, the vineyard that used to belong to his family. But when Ernest goes to work at Fir Hills, his plans are destroyed by the realization that he will never be able to afford it. As Ernest struggles with the cruelty of loss, he gains the chance to offer back to his wife what she cherished and lost: himself.
