As the Sims 4 is about to be out, I have decided to make a tour of the Sims 3 expansion packs.
My first lot was a starter house built with the base game. Now it's time for World Adventures, and I wanted to start by France, which is where my sister lives. In the coming days I will be adding Egypt and China.
The name of the lot means "little castle of the red wine". So that's the theme.
The house has a double and a single bed and a crib. The single bed may be replaced by a bunk bed and the house will fit up to 4 sims.

The house is placed on a small hill, and has a vineyard on one side and a separate building that includes a storage room and an underground cellar where to make and taste wine.

The colors I used in the house are based on wine varieties, mostly red.

The kitchen wall tiles use the three basic colors of wine: red, white and rosé.

game patch 1.67

Lot Size: 20x30
Lot Price: 77.613 / 44.189

No CC used

Stuff I use for building and decorating:

There's one object needed for the lot to show like the pictures. That is granthes' OMSP, I use it only for decorating purpose like things over the fridge (you can place the object on a shelf and hide the shelf in the top of the fridge using moving objects), floor plants over other surfaces, placing objets out of their usual slot or rising columns, so some of the decorations will dissappear or change a bit, not to many.

The curtains will stay in place, but if you try to move the ones that aren't in a wall you won't be able to place them back unless you use the mod by Huge Lunatic .

The same goes for the objects moved, tilted or turned by the mod by misukisu

And the objects with stencils removed with velocitygrass' mod will stay that way unless yo CAST them.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is a very adorable house. Makes me think of hobbits, for some reason.

Charming! I can never have enough Tuscan/Provencal/Med villa-type places and this one is quite lovely. Using the wine theme in the color scheme was a nice idea.
