Nel Innes (Gesine Cukrowski) is overjoyed to finally be able to resume her work at the New York restaurant she runs together with husband Marc (Harald Krassnitzer). But the joy of returning to her old life doesn’t last long: the man she married 20 years ago, with whom she built a business and raised their daughter Fleur (Amber Marie Bongard), who is about to graduate from high school, has cheated on her with pâtissière Melissa (Kristina Klebe). Head over heels, Nel packs her bags and flees to her father Gerald’s (Rolf Becker) family vineyard. There she experiences another surprise: Gerald wants to sell the estate, which has been in the family for generations, and enjoy the last years of his life with his late love Margret (Therese Hämer). A buyer has also already been found: Jake Carlyle (Martin Rapold), owner of the large corporation Brandovino, which fills the supermarket shelves of the East Coast with cheaply produced mass wines. Nel decides to buy the winery herself. However, she has to admit to herself that her physical strength has not yet fully returned after a long illness. However, Jake, of all people, makes Nel feel carefree and attractive for the first time in a long time. But Marc doesn’t want to just throw away their years together either. He offers to sell the restaurant to Nel in order to make a new start together on the winery. Surprisingly for everyone, however, Nel renounces the place of her childhood and returns to New York with Marc. There, the two do not want to succeed in saving their marriage. Nel realizes that love and security cannot be preserved. She must release Marc in order to be free herself for a new start into her gift years …
