In Vinhos (a Portuguese word, pronounced vin-yos, which means “Wines”) you play the role of a wine producer in Portugal, trying to make a name for yourself. You must demonstrate your business acumen by promoting your label, and establishing the best reputation at home and abroad. Competition is fierce:
Only the best labels can survive the test of time! Over a period of 6 years, you will expand your business by establishing estates (local branches of your company) in the different regions of Portugal, buying Vineyards and building wineries there. You can hire skilled enologists and capable farmers to help you increase the quality of your wine.
Each year begins with a weather forecast for the growing season, and ends with Wine production. Optimal climatic conditions can provide exceptional vintages, from which you can produce high-quality wines; while cloudy weather and heavy rain usually have devastating effects: The only way to produce palatable wines from such a yield is by expanding your estates or putting enologists, farmers, or even wine experts to work. With time, your wine will mature and become more valuable, but only if you have built a cellar in which it can age. Profit margins for wine producers can be tenuous, but you can increase your liquid cash by selling your wines to local Portuguese establishments, such as the Casa de Fados, the Hotel, or the Enoteca. These sales make it much easier to expand your estates and pay your employees’
salaries. But it takes more than money to earn prestige. In order to make a name for yourself on the international market, you must meet the requirements of various countries by exporting high-quality wines.
