Brothers Giancarlo and Ernesto Barandero have crossed illegally from Italy into France. Older Giancarlo is the practical protector, while younger Ernesto is the sensitive idealist albeit with an explosive temper. They are eluding the Italian police, as Ernesto killed a man in Genoa in protecting the honor of a woman he didn't even know. The Italian police do suspect the brothers of having crossed the border. Roaming the French countryside, the brothers decide to try and get work as grape pickers during the vintage, eventually being hired by the brusque Louis Morel, along with all Louis' regular Spanish pickers, led by the fiercely loyal Eduardo Uribon.

Crossing the border to France from their native Italy are runaway brothers Mel Ferrer (as Giancarlo Barandero) and John Kerr (as Ernesto Barandero). The younger Mr. Kerr is wanted for murder. Looking for jobs as "pickers" for "The Vintage" (grape crop) brings the two men to a vineyard run by Leif Erickson (as Louis Morel) and his earthy wife Michele Morgan (as Leone). Her young and beautiful sister Pier Angeli (as Lucienne) looks riper than the grapes, though she is due to marry Jack Mullaney (as Etienne Morel). The fugitive men stir up desire in the womenfolk. You would expect this group to ignite some passion on the screen, but no. Only the scenery seems real.
