In Viticulture, the players find themselves in the roles of people in rustic, pre-modern Tuscany who have inherited meager vineyards. They have a few plots of land, an old crushpad, a tiny cellar, and three workers. They each have a dream of being the first to call their winery a true success.
The players are in the position of determining how they want to allocate their workers throughout the year. Every 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 get to the job has an advantage over subsequent workers.
Fortunately for the players, people love to visit wineries, and it just so happens that many of those visitors are willing to help out around the vineyard when they visit as long as you assign a worker to take care of them. Their visits (in the form of cards) are brief but can be very helpful.
Using those workers and visitors, players can expand their vineyards by building structures and planting vines (vine cards) and filling wine orders (wine order cards), players work towards the goal of running the most successful winery in Tuscany.

Great game to be played with a glass o wine on the side
Beautiful worker placement game. Have played it solo so far and have to say it is quite challenging and it feels really satisfying when you manage to beat the automa!
It's a really friendly looking game. Played it at a friends house and had to buy it as soon as it became available. The game is a worker placement game. Players' workers perform tasks on a vineyard in order to produce wine. The goal of the game is to accumulate as many victory points as possible, which is mostly done by fulfilling wine orders. The games intoduces strategy by having to compete for actions which are limited in a year so players' turn play a major role in this. There are also 4 types of decks which accompany many of the actions. It's an easy to learn game and very replayable. I recommend the expansion Tuscany also which expands the game and makes is deeper.
The best game and Nice componant
It all started with Viticulture Essential Edition.... ... and now I have the Tuscany and Moor Visitors expansion packs as well as the metal coin upgrades. I love this game. An easy to explain, streamlined and most importantly fun worker-placement game. The aim of the game is to plant grape vines, harvest and process them into wine, and finally selling the end products to a variety of requests, which generate money and most importantly Victory Points. Whoever gets to 25 VP (or more) triggers the last year(a round in this game's terms) of play then the player with the biggest score wins. Players can invest in more workers (so they get more actions per year), build infrastructure within their vineyard (so they can plant the best grape vines), play cards which give perks - the list goes one in what you can do in a typical 'year' in-game. One of my favourite things about Viticulture is the starting order. You decide when to 'wake up' , which determines the player order. You woke up at 1am? Great! You get to go first and have first dibs at the actions. You woke up at 6am? (6AM - LAZY!) Well, you don't go first, however you a bonus of 1 VP! Great game - plays well with all player counts (including solo).
