The village of Vintiver is located on the borderlands of Ferelden and the ominous Brecilian Forest in the Southron Hills region. The villages primary crops is the growing of grapes that they turn into many wonderful wines. The village is made of around two dozen homesteads typically with garden plots and arbors for grape growing.
The village contains a few services and unique buildings other than locals homes. They include a small Chantry temple managed by the kind Sister Arda, a relative new comer to Vintiver, but well received for her devotion to Andraste and the Maker. A small inn known as the Arbor Inn provides room and board to travelers passing through and merchants who stop over to buy the villages wine. It is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Haran and Kesla Mullin. A blacksmith is present to fix and repair farming tools and make some small weapons of adequate quality for the local militia in times of need. The smithy and forge were operated by a serious man named Coalan who has little time for foolishiness and is now operated by his apprentice Dorn Mullin, the son of Haran and Kesla.
The village also has a communal stables and a communal winery.
