In French with English Subtitles Benjamin Lebel is a luminary in his field: an internationally renowned wine expert who publishes a keenly-awaited new guide every year. When the local police chief enlists his help in the hunt for a serial killer who combines murders with Grand Crus, Benjamin s intuition and his nose are stimulated by the puzzling case. They both prove infallible as he works his own investigation in the sumptuous settings of the loveliest wine-growing regions in France. Bitten by the investigative bug and welcomed by the police as an expert, he seeks out new mysteries to solve in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards and in the regions of Cognac and Champagne. Adapted from the crime collection published by Fayard, Blood of the Vine is a series of full-bodied, yet light thrillers!

Having purchased, watched and totally enjoyed Seasons 1 and 2, I can only hope there will be a season 3 and 4 and....
I was a bit dismayed to find that I was not permitted to sell my once viewed DVDs on Amazon due to restrictions so be forewarned - you will have to list this one on eBay. In addition, the shows are available on Amazon's streaming service, which I had not known.
