Danny Roth is the rich owner of a priceless collection of wines. He invites a journalist to write a piece about his rare collection and shortly afterwards is the unfortunate victim of a world-class wine heist. Roth is devastated.

Called in by Roth’s insurance company, lawyer and wine connoisseur Sam Levitt investigates, along with a beautiful French colleague, Sophie. Together they must get to the bottom of it, and if their enquiries take them to the finest chateaux of Bordeaux and the best restaurants in Provence, then who are they to complain?
