Synopsis (via Lifetime)

An aspiring sommelier enters a highly competitive training program hoping to save her family’s failing restaurant. Once there, strange things begin to happen, and she encounters trouble from her fellow competitors at every turn. When several people in the program mysteriously turn up dead, she finds herself not only framed for their murders but also in mortal danger. Lynn Kim Do, Monique Parent, and Michael Swan star. (2022)

Recap/Wine Thoughts

A woman wanders through a mansion with a lantern in a floral dress. She goes into a literal cave that is also a wine cellar and grabs a bottle. The woman becomes paranoid and hides; then she runs for her life whiles screaming “Help.” The bottle smashes to the ground, and we get the title card. (Hmmm, mysterious!) 

Cut to the present day, and we meet vlogger Emily, who hosts a show about wine on youtube. (Uhhh, is she me?) Emily is actually qualified to talk about wine, unlike me, because she is one of the most well-renowned sommeliers in the USA and THE WORLD. 

Emily helps out at her father’s restaurant, Lilla. (Named after her mother, who has passed away in a car accident.) As Emily closes up, a mysterious woman comes in from the rain on a stormy evening. Jillian is with the wine association academy and thinks her videos are “Interesting.” There is only one spot available a year, and the competition is cutthroat. Emily’s mother was once a member of the academy. To prove herself to the woman, Emily pairs a chardonnay with mac and cheese. (She then calls alfredo “Italian Mac and cheese,” which is ridiculous. No Italians eat Alfredo for real.) 

Brian, Emily’s dad, doesn’t want his daughter to go to the competition that killed her mother. (Which is understandable.) Emily cries to her dad, and he relents. She drives up to the winery, which is deep in the mountains. 

At the American Wine Academy, everyone is forced to give up their cell phones. (It is like the X-Men, but with wine!), Emily scopes out the competition. There is Kristen (the snob whose dad funds the competition.), Lucia (The nice girl), Clayton (the hunk), and Chad (The British hunk in a bowtie). They do a blind tasting, and Emily thinks it is boxed wine, and she is right. The others are offended by Emily’s presence. 

Emily wins a tour of the cave/cellar where her mother was years ago. Victor shows her around but leaves her alone with a lantern. Emily becomes anxious and runs around screaming, just like her mother. When she returns, Chad is VERY envious. She suspects he was the one trying to scare her in the cave/wine cellar. 

The contestants are split into pairs and sent into the vineyard to prune the grapes. While pruning, Emily has a panic attack and passes out. She wakes up and is sure that someone drugged her. She accuses Kristen of putting something in her wine, but no one believes her without proof. 

Emily wants to call the police, but Jillian won’t give her back her cellphone and offers a landline instead. Then Jillian and Victor pair Emily with Kristen so they can work out their differences or die trying. Literally, because they have to clean out the large metal wine barrels by hand, Emily gets locked in one, and it fills with water as she screams for help. Kristen lets her out, and they accuse Chad of trapping Emily. He is removed from the competition. 

Kristen is the next to go. She confronts someone in a hallway, and they knock her out. The next day all her belongings and car were removed from the property. Lucia thinks it is for the best, less competition. 

Clayton, the hunk, visits Emily with her shirt off and tells her that she can trust him, which means she can’t trust him. Emily doesn’t know that and has sexy time with him. 

The next day, Emily has an allergic reaction due to some down goose feather pillows and loses her smell and taste. Just in time for the blind tasting. She passes the test based on sight alone. 

The next test is a wine service test where a group of restaurant patrons judges them. Emily has Victor at her table and knows the bottle she wants to give him. The wine is in her room, but before she can get it, Chad confronts her and admits to poisoning her. Before he can say more, he is knocked in the back of the head with a wine bottle. Emily screams and runs away and calls 911.

Jillian drags Chad’s body to the cave/wine cellar and puts him with Kristen, who is tied up and gagged. 

Lucia wins the dinner service and is crowned by Jillian and Victor. 

Emily runs into Clayton, and he tells her to calm down and just head back to the party, but she runs away from him. In an office, Emily finds a class photo of her mother’s year. Jillian was also a classmate. Jillian appears behind her with a sabar and shares the story of what happened to her mother. 

In a flashback, we see Emily’s mother running from Victor, of all people. Jillian stops Lilla but pushes her too hard and kills her accidentally. They covered it up by making it look like a car accident.

Back in the present day, Emily can’t believe what she is hearing. She smashes Jillian on the head with a champagne bottle. Then she frees Kristen. Victor stops her, and Emily cries, confused as to what to do. Victor strangles Emily, but Jillian stops him.

Victor and Jillian argue distractedly when Emily pushes Victor onto Jillian’s saber, killing him. Emily throws wine bottles at Jillian to get herself and Kristen to safety. Jillian chases after them, but Emily takes her out with her mother’s favorite bottle of champagne.

Emily and Kristen are totally badass as they walk away from the police cars chugging wine from the bottle. Emily kisses Clayton as the sirens come closer. 

Cut to Emily and Kristen at their successful restaurant opening. Clayton is there too for moral support. They are the type of place that values their regulars over social media influencers, which means they won’t be open for long! The end!

Side Note

Minority Report: Lilla, Emily, 

The lead actress who played Emily was too good to be on Lifetime.

Also known as: A Glass of Revenge.
