Kieran, a virgin desperate for intimacy with another man, suffers loneliness during a muggy summer away from home. He rents a room above a garage in a vineyard, seemingly miles away from a town where he could meet anyone for affection and temptation. The sudden arrival of a confident and handsome stranger captivates him.
Teddy may be a stranger to Kieran, but he's no intruder. He's the owner of the winery. He enjoys his leisure in his man cave, a vaulted room attached to the garage, with earthly delights including whiskey and cigars. Teddy hasn't fooled around with another man since he left the military.
Kieran yearns for a sexual journey. Teddy doesn't think he needs anyone or anything more in his life. Both men are about to challenge themselves and their expectations.
