You find yourself in rustic, pre-modern Tuscany where you've inherited a meagre vineyard. You own a few plots of land, an old crush pad, a tiny cellar, three workers... and the dream of owning the best winery in Italy.
Your job is to allocate your workers and helpful visitors to complete various tasks throughout the year. Eech season is different on a vineyard, so the workers have different tasks they can take care of in the summer and winter. There's competition over those tasks, and often the first worker to arrive at each one has an advantage over the rest.
Using those workers and visitors, you can expand your vineyard by building structures, planting vines and filling wine orders as you work towards the goal of owning the most successful winery in Tuscany.
