The pack contains 52 cards + 2 Jokers + 2 rule cards in a matching box. Designs by Zemma & Ruiz Moreno, c.1998.

The deck is designed to play Quartet type games by collecting the appropriate wine bottle along with four matching glasses, which are listed down the left-hand side, except the two Jokers which are empty wine glasses. Captions at the bottom of each set of wine glass cards spell out aphorisms of etiquette and wisdom for wine lovers and gourmets:

“Para apreciar mejor los buenos vinos disponga de copas adecuadas de fino cristal blanco transparente con prolongado pie y de formato ovoide ó tulipán”
“To better appreciate good wines provide suitably fine and clear glasses with long stems and ovoid or tulip shaped bowls”

“Saber acerca del vino, su historia, su elaboración, sus variedades, su origen, su esencia, su mística aumenta el placer al beberlo”
“Knowing about wine, its history, its development, its varieties, its origin, its essence, its mystique enhances the pleasure of drinking it”
