Part 1 - The inheritance
A heavy blow for the passionate winemaker Anne: Her life's dream of following in her father's footsteps at the Winery Wader threatens to burst. When the patriarch dies unexpectedly, a serious omission takes revenge. The last will and testament, which is supposed to transfer the traditional family business seamlessly into Anne's hands, is missing the signature!
Instead of taking over the estate as sole boss, Anne has to share the inheritance with her brother Matthias and her mother Käthe. The fact that the two announce that they will sell their shares to the highest bidder pulls Anne away the floor under her feet. The single parent must now decide how to proceed for her and her blind daughter Tori. Fight, wait or start over somewhere else?
The situation gets even worse: her father's arch-enemy, Albert's brother Bruno, wants to take the parents' house and the vineyards under his nail. The fate of the estate is now in the hands of Käthe. Their decision is not only about money, but also about family secrets and a deep hostility.
