Gabriel Soto and Irina Baeva are the stars of the new Univision primetime telenovela "Vino El Amor." The Televisa production is already shooting its first scenes in the beautiful Napa Valley wineries in California. This new soap is based on the Chilean "La Chúcara" and it will also star Kimberly Dos Ramos ("¿Quién Es Quien?"), Christian De La Campa ("Tierra De Reyes"), Laura Carmine ("Amor Bravio"), Sofia Castro ("El Hotel De Los Secretos"), Alejandro Avila ("Que Te Perdone Dios"), Luciano Zacharski ("Así En El Barrio Como En El Cielo"), José Eduardo Derbez ("Amores Con Trampa"), Cynthia Klitbo ("La Casa En La Playa"), Azela Robinson ("Yo No Creo En Los Hombres") and many more.

Production of this drama series will take place in Tijuana, México and international locations in the majestic vineyards of Napa Valley, California. Univision announced the soap during their Upfront presentation and will air sometime this year. José Alberto "El Güero" Castro is behind this project, who was brought us telenovelas like "Pasión y Poder," "Rubí," "Corona De Lágrimas," "La Que No Podía Amar" and "Teresa."

"Vino El Amor" brings to light the life of Mexican-Americans seeking not only the American Dream but also success with family and love. Vicente is depressed after having lost his wife in a seemingly provoked accident, so much that he begins to neglect his children and the vineyard he loves so much. His mother-in-law and supposed best friend try to take advantage of the situation to take Vicente's fortune, but their plans are disrupted by an unexpected arrival.

Laura, a cheerful and spontaneous young woman who grew up on the vineyard with her father many years ago, returns to turn Vicente's life upside down. Through their love-hate relationship, Laura breathes new life into Vicente and rekindles his love for life and for his Napa Valley vineyard.
