Summer in the Vineyard is directed by Martin Wood. The teleplay was written by Julie Sherman Wolfe, which is based on the novel “Summer in Napa” by Marina Adair. Saturday night’s television movie is a sequel to the 2016 Hallmark film Autumn in the Vineyard. It stars Rachael Leigh Cook and Brendan Penny, according to Today.
