Vinhos (Portuguese word for "wines") is a trading and economic game about wine making.
Despite its small size, Portugal is one of the world’s leading wine producers. Why not get to know the country around a table? Over six years of harvests, cultivate your vines, choose the best varieties, hire the best oenologists, take part in trade fairs, and show your opponents you are the best winemaker in the game.
The players, winemakers in Portugal, will develop their vineyards and produce wine to achieve maximum profit.
The object of the game is to produce quality wines that can be exchanged for money or victory points.
The best wines are then sent to a wine fair in order to achieve fame and win awards.
Awake your senses and have fun making and selling your own wine.
From back of Box Cover:
In Vinhos (a Portuguese word meaning “Wines”) you will play the role of wine producers in Portugal.
Over a period of 6 years, you will expand your business by establishing Estates in the different regions of Portugal, buying vineyards and building wineries. Skilled enologists will help you increase the quality of your wine, while top Wine Experts will enhance its features at the "Feira Nacional do Vinho Português", the Wine Tasting Fair.
Selling your wines to Portuguese local hangouts will establish a market presence for your company, help you secure the funds to expand your company, and to pay your enologists’ salaries.
But, as everyone knows, prestige cannot come from money alone. To ensure a good reputation on international markets you must meet the requirements of various Countries, by consistently exporting high-quality wines.
Periodically, a Wine Tasting Fair will be held. It is up to you to decide the best time to announce which wine you intend to present. The choice of the best wine by value and features is essential to the prestige of your company and will definitely make all the difference!
It is suggested that players do not play their first game with the maximum number of players.
