Have you ever thought about dropping everything and becoming a vintner? Well, wine not?
You can finally live out the life of running a vineyard in this classic worker placement game. Which is exactly what it sounds like, you place workers in this game. Set in the Italian countryside, players inherit meager vineyards that require some work and some love. If Stardew Valley was set in Tuscany, you’d be spot on. Navigate the seasons while cultivating grapes and making wine, all the while carefully choosing where to send your workers. Of course, there’s another aspect: selling the wine you’ve worked hard to make. Fill wine orders to make your customers happy and spread petty rumors about the other vineyards in the region having rats. That last bit’s not officially part of the game, but hey. There can only be one top dog in the wine biz.
