Besides saving her great grandfather's winery, Maria's goal is to collect all the pieces of the legendary Vino Ultimate recipe, realize her great grandfather's dream of restoring peace among the 15 members of the winemakers Guild and earn her place as the "Leader of the World Guild of Extraordinary Winemakers."
"Whether you are a wine enthusiast or you just enjoy a great game, 'Winemaker Extraordinaire' is the game for you," said Uclick CEO Douglas Edwards. "This is a gorgeous game that immerses players in the rich history, lush settings and storied tradition of winemaking.

"We are really excited to team with Uclick on this fantastic game," said Lloyd Melnick, Chief Customer Officer at Merscom. "Although it is the first casual game set in the wine industry, it is likely to appeal to all gamers, casual and core, wine aficionados and beer drinkers. We think it is the next big casual game franchise."
