This game is about the production of Port wine in the Douro River Valley, the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. This unique product differs from the usual table wines through the addition of brandy during fermentation, which allows the creation of long lasting wines with a distinctive profile.

Among the various Port wine categories, a Vintage Port represents the best possible quality, a product of excel- lence. Contrary to what some people might think, it doesn’t mean the wine is 20 years old; just that it was produced in a year with exceptional quality harvests.

The player with the most Vintage points (abbreviated VP) at the end of the game is the winner.

To obtain VP, players have to sell Port wine. But first they have to acquire Estates, plant vineyards, harvest the grapes, transport the wine to the cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia, age it and only then sell it. All these actions are represented on the game board.

The player who can keep a constant flow of production, transportation, ageing and sale, with increasing wine quality and quantity, will win the game.
