Storyline

At the request of her father Truman Grange, Chloe Grange, the general manager at an upscale restaurant in Portland, Oregon, heads home to Grange Family Wineries in Oregon wine country for a week respite to hear her father's news which he wants to tell her in person. This time away from work, which coincides with the Valentine's Day Wine Festival, will also allow Chloe to ponder the job offer by her boss Maggie, the new job a lateral move albeit one with more pay. Deep in her heart, Chloe already believes she's gone as far as she can go in the restaurant business without being a restaurant owner herself, but without knowing what any alternative as a career for which she has equal passion would be. She, along with the winery management team, learn that Truman's news is that, following the death of his wife - Chloe's mother - he has decided to retire.

Love is What's Important
26 October 2018 | by Anthony_RauscherSee all my reviews

Like a warm, inviting, familial, comfortable "Christmassy" Valentine's day, with a touch of a new spring crispness, and freshness, in the air.

"Akward" charm - poking fun, jabs etc.. begins after Seth and Chloe first meet in romantic happenstance, and like each other, and then meet again, under slightly different circumstances!

They both have important things going on in their lives, but what they grow to realize, is how important they are to each other, as much as the things they each value.

Their actions are full of sincerity, genuineness, and meaningfulness, and ultimately purpose - in the things that they are doing in their lives, and for each other - and it's the characters valuing of things, that keeps bringing them closer, and closer together.

There's not many characters, but all of them are cute, and carry the pace of the plot very nicely.

If you've never seen Lacey Chabert in Party of Five, you wouldn't need to. This is a perfectly glowing moment for her, and her character guides the whole movie along just amazingly, with her succinct powerfulness, fully defended yet unabashed vulnerabilities, and a good dose of natural sweetheartedness, fun, and cute!

This movie moves at a sweet, charming, natural pace that just WANTS to happen, and you just want this movie to happen, and it does! And that's what makes it so good :)
