KELOWNA - Following the successful film Autumn in the Vineyard comes a new film being shot in the South Okanagan Summer in the Vineyard.

Principal photography for the Hallmark Channel movie began this week, and the film will premiere during the channel’s annual Summer Nights programming event, according to a release from the Okanagan Film Commission. The film is being shot in Naramata, Penticiton, Osoyoos and Oliver.

Autumn in the Vineyard was filmed in the Oliver area last August.

“The Okanagan is often compared to California’s Napa Valley where the story is set,” film commissioner Jon Summerland says in the release. “Once again, our beautiful Okanagan locations are bringing productions back to shoot in the region.”

Starring Rachael Leigh Cook and Brendan Penny, the film continues the romantic tale of Frankie Baldwin (Cook) and Nate DeLuca (Penny) and their winery.

A description of the film says when the host winery for the annual Summerfest event pulls out, DeLuca puts forward his and Baldwin’s winer, Sorrento Farms, as its replacement. Although DeLuca thinks the event will be great publicity for their winery, Baldwin worries whether they are ready for the spotlight.

These two headstrong paramours are about to find out if you really can mix business with pleasure, because the course of love never does run smoothly when grapes are involved, the description continues.

The movie is based on the book St. Helena Vineyard by Marina Adair, is produced by Muse Entertainment and directed by Martin Wood.
