The Vineyard , adaptation of the Spanish novel A smile between two silences by María Dueñas is a romantic and historical drama Amazon Original Spain.
Set in the late 19th century, the plot revolves around the lives of Soledad Montalvo ( Leonor Waitling ) and Mauro Larrea ( Rafael Novoa ) who, unbeknownst to them, are destined to meet.
The patriarch of a family of winemakers from Jerez, specialized in the production of Sherry wine, agrees to tie his family to that of an English exporter through an arranged marriage with one of his granddaughters, Sol .
The protagonist, despite herself, will be forced to move to London, leaving all her loved ones and the family vineyard, slowly on the way to decline.
At the same time we meet the widower Mauro . Forced by economic hardship, he emigrated first to Mexico and then to Cuba in search of new activities to pay off the immense debt incurred and save his family.
When the paths of Sol and Mauro cross, an unexpected synergy pushes them to help each other to overcome common adversities.
A story that tells of how to build an empire and how to lose everything in one day, about adventures in exotic lands and about second chances.
Although Jerez is the main stage, The Vineyard is a transatlantic adventure. It takes us to travel through Mexico and its mining communities, London and its high society and Cuba and its slave trade, showing the stark contrast between luxury and poverty. However, all roads lead to glorious Jerez, home to important wineries, the epicenter of all history. Each of the characters will be forced to travel to the Andalusian town for different reasons.
The cities also rise to the role of the protagonist and the setting of each of these places helps the series to reach a good level.
The narrated epic is not a quick and hasty love affair. The narration is slow. He is not satisfied with exposing an unlikely relationship but the intent is to tell about different unions, with their different ways of wanting. Little by little we get to know all the characters and the different situations that surround them.
Some aspects, however, clash: certain clearly forced accents and some interpretations more than a series make us think of a South American soap opera.
Wine is the common thread that ends up connecting all events. It is present in almost all the episodes both for the glasses that the characters sip, and for the vineyard or the place where it is produced. By analogy, the series is processed at the same speed as this drink, with the time and patience to harvest all that is sown. Everything rests on the bottom with a subdued rhythm to meet a perhaps a bit too hasty ending.
The same thing that happens with wines happens with series. No matter how much effort is behind it, you don’t always get a Special Reserve. The Vineyard remains a new wine. Good intentions, added to aesthetic care, cannot ignore the visual excess. An excessively simple connection between protagonists and an extremely extreme idea that the end justifies the means.
