Angela Channing (Jane Wyman) har bjudit in sin brors sonson Cole (Billy Moses) på ett glas av Falcon Crests gamla klenodvin och berättar att de alla härstammar från en passionerad italienare och en mystisk och envis svenska:

Angela: "That is history Cole! It was bottled by your great great grandfather. He was an Italian immigrant, who came to America a little bit late for the gold rush.

A passionate Italian and a mystical Swede. They produced strange people. Us!"
