Here’s the official description:
The Kings of Napa is centered on a gorgeous and picturesque Napa Valley, California vineyard owned by the Kings, an aspirational African American family whose wealth and status land them on the pages of design magazines and society pages. The wine business has brought the family success and acclaim, but following the patriarch’s sudden exit from the company, his three children must grapple for the reins to the kingdom — to their own power, wealth, and legacy.
Noel plays August King, the middle sibling and the family’s brilliant marketing whiz who’s passionate about wine and always looking for new ways to expand the business. Nix plays Dana King, the older brother and the savvy CFO of the winery. LeBlanc plays Vanessa King, the matriarch of the family who gave up her career to help run the winery in Napa with her husband Reginald King, played by Whitlock. King Mondschein plays Bridgette Pierce, the cousin of the King siblings who works as the vineyard manager for House of Kings wine. Brian plays Christian King, the youngest brother with swag who manages the winery’s bottling facility but knows little about growing grapes. And Parikh plays Melanie Pierce, August’s aunt who is now back in the States with a firestorm that threatens to change the King family forever.
Barrois also serves as executive producer alongside Michelle Listenbee Brown , Oprah Winfrey. Sherman Barrois who serves as showrunner. The first two episodes are directed by Matthew A. Cherry.
