Wine is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.


Wine is an alcoholic beverage, made from the fermentation of grape juice. It is produced by fermenting crushed grapes using various types of yeast which consume the sugars found in the grapes and convert them into alcohol. There are several vintages available in the wasteland, including the 2068 Atomic Claret and 2043 Chateau Montrose.

Wine is an addictive drink which when consumed provides a minor status boost - increasing Charisma and Strength by one while reducing Intelligence by one.

As with most alcoholic item in Fallout: New Vegas, wine's effects (both positive and negative) are altered by the player's Survival skill. With a Survival skill of 100 the player will receive +3 to Charisma and Strength and -3 to Intelligence.

In hardcore mode wine will increase the player's level of dehydration. This effect is also affected by the Survival skill, ranging from +25 at lower levels to +75 at 100 Survival skill.

Wine can also be used as an ingredient for grilled mantis and black blood sausage (Old World Blues add-on).
