When the Italian countryside simply won’t leave your heart…

After the sudden death of her Italian winemaker husband Francesco, Meryl Michelli flees to her small hometown in Pennsylvania, looking to slam the door on heartache and trudge forward. But it’s never that simple, especially when old family ties have been strained by years of geographic and emotional distance. A chance encounter with a childhood friend brings back a betrayal she could never put to rest, and readjusting to life in the States in upper mid-life wears thin in ways she never could have imagined.

True Vines traverses the manicured rows of northern Italy’s majestic wine country and the winding path of Pennsylvania’s Delaware River as Meryl seeks to reconcile her past and her present. People on each side of the Atlantic guide her as she relives her own stories. Each recollection and encounter deepens Meryl’s insight into how to make peace with her new reality.

Saying goodbye to one existence allows Meryl to swing the door open to another as she weaves a new, uniquely beautiful tapestry that transports her to exactly the place in this short, sacred life she is meant to be.
