Actually, this is Viticulture: Essential Edition, but I'll be calling...

The irrigation system was ready, but there was still work to be done on the trellises. The windmill, cottage and tasting room were still just ruins and only the first third of the wine cellar was accessible. The crush pads were all clean and ready to receive the first harvest of grapes, yet the fields were still bare. Orders for some red and white wine had already come in and two types of grapes were ready to be planted. It was the beginning of a vineyard that was going to be splendid. Mama and Papa were looking forward to putting the work in and creating a heritage that would make the family name proud.

I only like Viticulture with the new board from Tuscany. I think it's barely mediocre without it, and pretty okay with it. Unfortunately that makes it a $100 game, which I don't think it's worth at all. They really missed a trick not including the board with the newer essentials version.

Viticulture is a Manischewitz hangover in a box.

I found Viticulture to be somewhat fun, but the Grande worker makes it too hard to block others, and the visitor cards completely break the game in terms of their swinginess. Some do almost nothing, others basically give you 3 critical actions for the price of 1, with a bonus on top.
