Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Valentine’s Day 2019 begins Saturday night with the premiere of “Valentine in the Vineyard,” the third installment of Rachael Leigh Cook and Brendan Penny’s “Valentine” franchise.

It all began in 2016 with “Autumn in the Vineyard,” continued in 2017 with “Summer in the Vineyard,” and, now, fans are getting even more of one of their favorite couples, Frankie Baldwin (Cook) and Nate DeLuca (Penny).

“With Sorrento Farms’ first wines in high demand, co-owners Frankie Baldwin and Nate DeLuca seem to be on their way to a successful future – and with Nate’s marriage proposal, they will be on their way to the altar, as well,” the synopsis shares. “But they decide to keep the news a secret when Frankie’s cousin Lexi (Tegan Moss) and Nate’s brother Marco (Marcus Rosner) unexpectedly announce their plans to wed on Valentine’s Day, a mere four weeks away.”

The synopsis continues: “Instead, Frankie and Nate find themselves making a test-run for their own nuptials after they offer to host Lexi and Marco’s wedding at Sorrento Farms. As they juggle wedding planning with a high-stakes winery expansion, Frankie and Nate begin to wonder if their opposites-attract viewpoints make them a less-than-perfect pairing.”

The Hallmark movie, which was directed by Terry Ingram and written by Rick Garman, also stars Marcus Rosner (Marco DeLuca, “Yes I Do”), Tegan Moss (Lexi Moreau, “Garage Sale Mystery: Murder by Text”), Michael Kopsa (Charles Baldwin, “Welcome to Christmas”), Laura Soltis (Carla DeLuca, “Yes I Do”), Madison Smith (Gabe DeLuca, “Falling for You”) and Teryl Rothery (Patricia Baldwin, “Road to Christmas”). Cook is also an executive producer on the movie.

Check out “Valentine in the Vineyard” premieres on Hallmark Channel on Saturday at 8 p.m. EST.
