The role of Francesca Gioberti was initially offered to Sophia Loren. The producers of the show tried to lure her with promises of a fantastic wardrobe and a dynamic character that would rival Alexis Colby from Dynasty (1981), but contract negotiations with Loren broke down and the part was then offered to Gina Lollobrigida. Ironically, Loren was Aaron Spelling's first choice for the character of Alexis in Dynasty, but was passed over because she was requesting too much money, thus allowing the role to go to Joan Collins.

Who could have thought that Earl Hamner,the creator of The Waltons would follow in the footsteps of series creators Lee Rich and Aaron Spelling? Well,Lee Rich was the brains behind "Dallas" and "Knots Landing",while Aaron Spelling was at the helm behind "Dynasty","Hotel",and "The Colbys", Hamner was the creator behind "Falcon Crest" one of the solid classic soap operas that ever came to prime-time. While it rivoted viewers from 9 seasons on CBS-TV,it was one of the top ten shows of the 80's and early 90's. This show was totally different and it didn't take it stories too seriously since it was set in the Tuscany Valley of California which consisted of wealthly vinyardists who would bickered at each other,and plot and scheme their way to the top of the empire. Leading by some heavy hitters including legendary actress Jane Wyman,Susan Sullivan,Robert Foxworth and Lorenzo Lamas and not to mention special appearances by Ursula Andress and actor Eddie Albert,this show was to make the expected the unexpected and so forth. Great series! Catch it on SoapNet!
