The much anticipated and highly publicized Telemundo series, Blood and wine (Sangre de mi tierra) will finally be airing today the 7th of May 2018.It will air by 4:00pm WAT and 3pm CAT on DSTV and GOTV for its African audience.
The contemporary series center on intensified conflicts between the two families of Montiel and Castaneda caused by the death of a son. It follows the Castaneda family’s quest to avenge the pain of the untimely and undeserved death of their son (Emilio, played by Daniel Elbittar) by attacking the culprit and his family.
This quest will however destroy a long standing friendship and family history between these wine producing families of Napa, California.
Adding to the conflict is an illicit budding love affair between Paco Montiel (the father of Juanjo – the reckless young man whose excesses caused the death his best friend, Emilio Castaneda) and Paloma Castaneda (The youngest daughter of the Castaneda family).
Similarly, the love triangle between the already married Aurora Castaneda, the reformed Juan Jose Montiel and the overly jealous Roberto Quiroga, further aggravates the rift.
The series had first been televised on other Telemundo networks between the period of November 2017 and February 2018 and is finally making its debut today Monday the 7th on Telemundo Africa.
While it first aired, Blood and wine gained positive reception from its American audience, the setting which features the lush and expanse green land of Florida appeals to the visual senses of its audience as well as its contemporary theme.
Hopefully, Nigerians and other African countries would also be swept up by the passion and drama of this 59 episodes series.
