Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina is a secondary quest in the Blood and Wine expansion.

Journal entry Edit

From the start, both Matilda and Liam insisted the problems at their vineyards had not appeared out of thin air. Naturally, they accused one another of foul play. Geralt suspected there was more to the matter, and yet again his intuition proved true. While solving the problems at the vineyards, he had happened on some notes. These suggested someone had intentionally planted archespores amidst the vines at both estates. The witcher had also found a key to the shelter where saplings of the beastly plants had been stored.
Geralt searched the dugout and learned that the sabotage at Coronata and Vermentino had been the brainchild of Count Vladimir Crespi.
What Geralt had learned shed new light on the dispute Liam and Matilda. It seemed Count Crespi had intentionally incited the quarrel between them. They decided to do him one better - Liam and Matilda settled their differences and formed a consortium.
