Critical Review - Viticulture: The Strategic game of Wine Making

Are you a wine connoisseur?  Do you enjoy a good pinot noir, blush, or sparkling wine while gathering with friends for an evening of roundtable discussion?  Can you tell the difference between several different grapes just by feeling them between your toes?  If so, the game we’re going to take a look at today, may be right up your alley, or in this case, vineyard!


Today we’re going to look at Viticulture, the strategic game of winemaking from Jamey Stegmaier and Alan Stone, founders of Stonemaier Games.  What is Viticulture?  Why would a board gamer care?  Let’s delve into the Wine Cellar and get some answers!

    Hey hey Tox - crushingbelial/dr. adam from bgg here. Very interesting review. Am enjoying watching your reviews. Hard as heck to watch a review when I see a mage wars box in the background ;)

    Thanks doc! Yes, it's a tease isn't it? :) Glad you are enjoying the videos. This was an interesting one, and one, that like a fine wine, gets better with age (and more play/use) :)
