Commanding operations from this French chateau, one has to build the winery, plant and look after the vineyards through all four seasons of the year. The staff to harvest and process the grapes also needs to be hired.

One can produce 50 French wines such as Bordeaux, Burgundy, Pinot Gris and Champagne from more than 40 different grape varietals, all in the ultimate goal of becoming a wealthy wine baron. Making its debut this month this full-bodied but wallet-friendly France-centric game will retail for $19.99 according to the company website.

Each wine region has its own unique style and flavor, not only in appearance, but also in the different traditional grape varieties grown and the wines made. The game has two levels of game complexity; Career and Free Play. Both are provided with a tutorial each, allowing players to gradually develop their gaming and wine-making skills, or roll up their sleeves and get a kick start with funds to start a vineyard from scratch.
