About Us

The wine guild, discussing all aspects of the wine production process.

The guild maintains a warehouse next to the guild hall to facilitate cutting and wine exchange. Cuttings in the warehouse are free for the taking.

Wine Exchange

For now, we ask that you add two bottles to the exchange for each one you take. As we build up a stock, we can change the exchange rate.

Hybrid Vines

    • RoaminUmp#1, phenotype ACCS (i.e. it's a bit worse than Frivolity :/)
    • RoaminUmp#4, phenotype AGGGV (should be more grapes than Distraction)
    • RoaminUmp#5, phenotype ACSSS (more sugar than frivolity)
    • Shelyak#1 (on vineyard), phenotype GGSSV (like Distraction, but with Frivolity's sugar profile)

Getting Started in Winemaking

Distraction is a fantastic grape to get rolling with - decent numbers across the board, and TONS of grapes. Plus, it's pretty foolproof - nearly all of the vine states have an obvious best tending choice. If you follow this plan, you'll end up with great vines (vigor numbers noted):

    • Fat->Shade (-6)
    • Musty->Pinch (-1)
    • Rustle->Trim (-2)
    • Sagging->Mist (-2)
    • Shimmer->Spread (-9)
      • If you don't want the big vigor hit, you can Aerate for -2, but you lose 3 grapes.
    • Shrivel->Tie (-3)
    • Wilting->Pinch (-3)

If you want to target high-quality wines, go with Appreciation; for very high-sugar, Frivolity. They're both OK at grape production, not great. Brilliance is hard to get great products out of - it's good for color, but not much else.
