Part mystery, part puzzle and part RPG, but all fun.This game may be a bit graphics light, but in a web game this is not a big detriment.

It puts you in the role of winery owner, and allows you to take a shot at running your own business (in this case a brand new winery) then try out this surprising and challenging title. You may find that keeping the grapes, and the customers happy is much harder then it seems. All in all it has a surprisingly sophisticated gameplay.
