It’s actually quite interesting that the selling price of your wine depends on what kind of fruit you put into it. Meaning, you will have to work on your fruit crops if you’d like to make a business out of wine making.

Also, you will get more gold if you are an Artisan by profession. This way, you’ll get 1.4x the price (for example, 140 gold coins instead of 100). Not everyone will choose this profession, so you might want to benefit from silver or gold star wine. That’s how you can get 1.25x or even 1.5x of the original selling price. If you’re really devoted to this business, you can work on getting the iridium star, which will bring you 2x of the selling price.
