I think this might be one of my favorite cards in the game because of how all the various pieces come together to make it work thematically and mechanically.
The idea is that a traveling entertainer visits your vineyard. What do you, the vineyard owner, do? You choose your four best workers, give them a few bottles of wine, and tell them to take the afternoon off. In return, your reputation as a great vineyard owner spreads.
Originally this card didn’t require the wine, but when reports started coming in of playtesters who won the game without making any wine by using this card, I realized that something needed to change. Fortunately it actually works better thematically with the change, and Viticulture remains a game about making wine instead of telling your workers to not make wine. :)
