Luigi Scapini, creator of such popular decks as the Tarocco delle Vetrate and Medieval Scapini Tarot, takes on the task of creating a deck centering around the theme of "wine" (thus the source of the deck's title: Bacchus, the Roman god of wine). According to the accompanying booklet, "The 16 Court Cards... represent today's most important wine-producing countries, whereas the 40 Numeral Cards refer to the agricultural, business, and recreations activities linked to wine." The details of which countries and which activities correspond to which cards are not specified in the booklet, leaving the viewer to make these determinations on their own. The images are not consistently among Scapini's better tarot illustrations, but the cards nonetheless exhibit a colorful playfulness with a certain appeal.
