The Witcher 3 - Wine Wars: Belgaard, Vermentino / Coronato, The Deus in the Machina, Consorting, Belgaard

A guide to every one of the expansion's side-quests.

This page covers Wine Wars: Belgaard, Vermentino / Coronato, The Deus in the Machina, Consorting and Belgaard. If you're looking for more assistance, our Witcher 3 Blood and Wine walkthrough can help.

Wine Wars: Belgaard

Found on the noticeboard at the Cockatrice Inn.

It's worth noting two quests have the same name, and this is the first of the pair. This is more of a stub than a quest: head for the marker in Plegmund's Bridge and watch the argument unfold, then talk to the to antagonists to finish the quest and unlock Wine Wars: Coronata and Wine Wars: Vermentino.

We made etoile blanche from The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine

Wine Wars: Vermentino/Coronato

Unlocked by completing Wine Wars: Belgaard.

The two quests run over each other and can be tackled in either order. You can either do all five of one and return to Plegmund's Bridge for your reward, or you can just do the Guarded Treasure at both to unlock another quest.

  • Monster Nest. Kill the carnivorous plants, then destroy the nest with a grenade.
  • Guarded Treasure. Kill the carnivorous plants. Search the corpses to find a note.
  • Abandoned Site. Kill the carnivorous plants.
  • Hidden Treasure. Defeat the two Rock Trolls (Coronato) or the Rotfiends (Vermentino). Loot the nearby body and read the note to unlock Treasure Hunt: Coin Doesn't Stink (Coronato)/Don't Take Candy From a Stranger (Vermentino).
  • Person(s) In Distress. Head to the marker and kill the bandits. (When the captive asks you to accompany them say you have more to do, then loot the corpses to find a letter).

Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina

Unlocked by completing either Wine Wars: Vermentino or Wine Wars: Coronato and then clearing the guarded treasure at the other location.

Head to Tesham Mutna, and watch out for the Beann'shie patrolling the area. In the marked area look for a worn red door concealed below a wall and unlock it with the key(s) you found. Head inside and fight off the Archspore then use Witcher Sense to search the area - inside a crate is a stocktaking report that sheds more light on proceedings. Burn the two batches of seedlings with a shot of Igni if you feel so inclined, and then head back to Plegmund's Bridge.

Wine Wars: Consorting

Unlocked by completing Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina.

Clear the remaining troubles in the vineyards then return to claim your reward.

Elsewhere, learn about the best Witcher 3 builds, the best Witcher 3 mods, how to make money in Witcher 3, find Places of Power locations, and learn how to do Witcher 3 crafting and Witcher 3 Alchemy And when you're done with all those - we can help you through expansions with our Hearts of Stone walkthrough and Blood and Wine walkthrough.

Wine Wars: Belgaard

Unlocked by completing Wine Wars: Consorting.

Note that this is the second quest under this name. Head to Belgaard and find out what's afoot. This is essentially a rehash of the other Wine Wars quests, with five problem spots to resolve. The Abandoned Place contains a new enemy type, the Slyzard, so you may want to have Draconid oil to hand. Once the areas are clear return to collect your reward. Once at least three days have elapsed head back again to have a wine named after you, and to secure a regular supply of it to your house.
