The Vinhos Deluxe 2016 is a new simplified version of the original game of Vinhos 2010 with new components and improved rules. 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 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. A Wine Tasting Fair is at the end of the 3rd, 5th, and 6th year where each player must present 1 Wine, and only 1 Wine, to be judged at the Fair. The best way to produce palatable wines 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. You can increase your liquid cash by selling your wines to local Portuguese establishments, 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. The winner is the player with the most Victory Points at the end of the game.
