Rebecca Gibney (Wanted, Packed to the Rafters, Halifax: Retribution) and Charles Edwards (The Crown, The Terror, Downton Abbey) star as two unlikely city slickers who inherit a failing vineyard in rural New Zealand. Sydney socialite Daisy Munroe (Gibney) heads to Peak View, New Zealand for a vacation at her recently deceased stepfather’s winery, which she intends to sell. Little does she know that the vineyard has a co-owner, grumpy UK-born lawyer, Louis Oakley (Edwards), who also travels to the wine region to escape a spiraling series of unfortunate events in his life. Despite neither having done a hard days’ work in their lives and both despising each other, the two must somehow make Oakley Winery successful so they can sell up, split up and get out. But as they dig into the project, they discover it’s never too late to come of age.

The ensemble cast includes Dean O’Gorman (One Lane Bridge, The Hobbit trilogy), Sara Wiseman (A Place to Call Home), John Bach (The Sounds, Janet King), Matt Whelan (The Sounds), Simon Mead (Nothing Trivial), Sarah Peirse (Poor Boy), Cohen Holloway (Top of the Lake), Carrie Green (Mystic), Catherine Wilkin (Stateless), Robbie Magasiva (Wentworth) and newcomer Trae Te Wiki.

Under the Vines is produced by Carmen J Leonard and executive produced by Gibney and Richard Fletcher for Libertine Pictures, and Brendan Dahill for EQ Media Group. Acorn Media Enterprises, the company’s London-based development division, co-produces. The series’ writers are Tim Balme (The Sounds, The Brokenwood Mysteries) for the first episode with other episodes written by Nick Ward, J C Stewart-Te Whiu, Kathryn Burnett, Harry McNaughton, and series creator/director Erin White.

EPISODE SYNOPSES:

EPISODE 1 (Premieres Monday, December 6)

When Sydney socialite Daisy Munroe and London lawyer Louis Oakley jointly inherit a New Zealand vineyard, they discover that they are not the “sole heirs” as they believed and that the vineyard itself is a dilapidated money pit. The disenchanted pair plan to sell the estate to influential locals, but after a surprise at a wine show, they wonder if the vineyard may not be worthless after all.

EPISODE 2 (Premieres Monday, December 6)

Daisy gets her hands dirty with Tippy and Gus, while Louis gets more insight from Hilary than he bargained for. Daisy and Louis hope to ease their financial woes with a visit to the bank but discover that failing to comply with the “law of the land” can have consequences. Daisy makes the ultimate sacrifice to give the run-down vineyard a chance of survival­­—or will it merely be a stay of execution?
