BORDEAUX, FRANCE Someday, early XIXth
Due to war in Europe, France’s trade routes were frozen and an accumulation of exports remained land-locked.
Thirsty connoisseurs and intrepid traders across the Atlantic have long awaited this cargo alongside crews of adventurers brave enough to bring it to them.
After Napoleon’s defeat, the treaty (El "Pacto") signed among European nations, restores peace in Europe and opens up commercial routes once again. Savvy merchants across the Atlantic could resume their trade and satisfy adventurers’ desire for the best goods from both sides of the ocean.
France’s finest export, wine, takes the sea route again towards the New World.
Sauternes, a sweet Bordeaux white wine respected by experienced palates, is once again traded and gains fame on the other side of the Atlantic.
Loaded onto ships by French traders, the golden liquid would be sent to the New World in exchange for a selection of exotic and refined goods brought back for fine European tastes. An epic encounter of two worlds’ best.
Our adventures begin.
