The name says it all, this shop deals exclusively in the finest wines available in North America. Those looking for common swill must search elsewhere, Flavarrel's Fine Wines sells only the best vintages available. Chances are whatever style of wine one is looking for, it can be
found here, whether it be a red, white, dry, sweet, a Chardonnay, champagne or ice wine. Most of the wines sold here come from the owner's vineyards found to the south of MercTown. In addition to these, the store imports selections primarily from Lazlo and Free Quebec but also Kingsdale, the New West, Los Alamo (made from the local purple fruit), Atlantis and even a few from other dimensions. Prices are steep but worth it for the quality of the wine. Costs range from 200 to 10,000 credits per bottle. Flavarrel's does a tidy business in MercTown. The shop supplies virtually all of the finer restaurants in the city-state and has a widespread clientele from among its upper classes. In addition, the vineyard exports its products to various communities around the continent that include Kingsdale, Lazlo, New Lazlo, Old Bones, the Colorado Baronies, Pecos Empire, Arzno, the Golden Age Weaponsmiths city-states and until recently, Tolkeen, Free Quebec, and the Coalition States. Total profits are rumored in the neighborhood of 10-20 million credits a year, which is enough to make the owner, Maritus Flavarrel, a very wealthy man.

Fresh from the flower shop, Minerva looks over and sees a wine shop. "Ooh, vino!" She makes her way inside and takes a look at the decor, the displays and then heads to the counter to talk to the patron of the store. "Good afternoon! I look for a Malbec or a Riesling with either the hints of the apricots and peaches or honey. Do you have such a thing?"

After much thought, Minerva decides on some options. "I will take a case of the Los Alamos Riesling for my new squad. They won't know the difference, no? Four bottles of the Quebec Riesling, and one each of the Lazlo Malbec, German Riesling and the Golden Age Malbec. That one, I will save for after a particularly hard mission. Where I come from, wines are very important. I am glad to find such a purveyor as yourself who knows their craft." Minerva says all of this while handing over her card to pay. "These can be delivered, yes?"

Once all done, she heads out to see what the Mystic Quarter is all about.

"Excellent choices, madame. It sounds like you are stocking a new abode. Welcome to Mmerctown. May I say, your accent is delightful."

"Absolutely. It will arrive at the given address within the hour; assuming it is within the city."
