Corvo Bianco Vineyard is a location in The Witcher 3: Blood & Wine. It is an abandoned estate you’ll receive as a reward early on in the game, which you can then upgrade and model to your liking. This guide will show you how to upgrade Corvo Bianco vineyard, what you’ll get for each upgrade.

Witcher 3 Player Housing

Corvo Bianco is the first time we get to settle down in The Witcher 3. The manor and vineyard can act as a home to Geralt, where he can rest between adventures, prepare for new ones and invite friends to spend time with.

You’ll unlock it pretty early on. The duchess will ask you to solve a monster problem and offer the old vineyard as reward. After you finish the quest, the estate will be all yours. You’ll be able to repair and upgrade it by following the No Place Like Home quest.

Decorative Trophies for Geralt’s Vineyard

blood and wine house decoration trophy The master bedroom can be decorated with trophies. These aren’t the regular monster trophies you get for slaying beasts – they’re special trophies obtained in special ways. There are three slots for placing them, at the foot of the bed. If you’d like to get them yourself, check out our guide on How to Get Trophy for Geralt’s Vineyard Corvo Bianco.

Where to find paintings in Blood and Wine

The manor has several places where paintings are meant to be hanged. This can be a bit frustrating at first, since you won’t have any. You can get them by solving side quests and visiting art merchants. In case you’ve saved it, you can also use art from the base game and the previous DLC, like:
  • Starry Night Over the Pontar
  • Hierarch Hemmelfart
  • Portrait of Iris and Olgierd

Corvo Bianco Base Upgrades

As soon as the keys have changed hands, a servant will move in. Talking to him will allow you to renovate the estate, but you’ll have to pay up. The renovations aren’t cheap (the early ones cost about 5000 orens), but they’re substantial. Here’s a list of upgrades we know will be available for certain:

      Pretty big spoilers, but after you finish the main quest a guest will come over. Who that guest is depends on your decisions in the main game.
      If you romanced Yen or Triss the one who you romanced will show up
      If you didn’t romance either and Ciri is alive, she will show up
      And lastly if you didn’t romance either and Ciri is dead, Dandelion shows up.

      1. Carson Hawkins

        So dandelion is basically the consolation prize for being a dick to all women throughout the main quests…

    1. Kallelinski

      It looks like you can’t. The guest room is for a special guest at the end of the game, e.g. you romanced Yennefer, Yennefer will appear.

      1. sla-3

        Well, if you romanced Yen or Triss, they will share room with you(when you decide to sllep in your bed they will wake up next to you). Ciri and Dandelion use guest room.

  1. Mord

    Final upgrades never update. I have been waiting for several days (longer than what is stated in the quest info) for the stable and guest room.

    1. AnimusAstralis

      They don’t change much – a new bed in guest room and stables are still dirty and somewhat broken-down yet better organized.

      1. Mord

        Stable hasn’t changed at all. Forgot to mention that in the quest notes that they are still open. Also forgot to state that the garden one is still incomplete.

        1. Sylver

          The stable upgrade grants you a bonus to Roach’s stamina after resting on your bed. Go to your bedroom and make sure you have this available to you.

          1. Mord

            There is no option to rest on the bed even though I paid for a new one. Also I never left Toussaint.

    2. Clausi

      Be aware, there is currently a bug that upgrades do not show up when you leave Toussaint while it processes. Stay in the DLC area as long as upgrades are built.

    3. Eric

      Did you travel outside of Toussaint in that time? There is currently a bug that if you leave Toussaint while there is work being done on your house it will never finish.

  2. Sylver

    So I added all the Armor Racks and started to proudly display all my upgraded Witcher gear. I was using the Leg Viper gear but as you can’t upgrade it to Grandmaster I stuck it on a rack. Came back the next day and its glowing bright RED!! If I take it off the rack its uncoloured in my inventory and if I change the colour of it this makes no difference on the rack as it still glows a very bright red.
    All my other upgrades are fine, everything else worked for me.
    Anyone else got possessed Witcher gear???

  3. JahJah

    and whats with this trophy places in Geralds bedroom? i cant place trophies there…can anyone help?

    1. Eric

      They are for special trophies you can get from a few quest found around Toussaint, not your normal monster trophies.

    2. Sylver

      I HAve 2 tropies so far. One from the gwent tourney (B&W Skellige) and one from fistfighting.
      If anyone knows the 3rd I’d appreciate hearing about it.

      1. Eric

        You get it from the quest “Hunger Game”
        Without spoiling to much, you only get the quest to get the trophy if you chose to remove a curse from someone during the main quest.

        1. Sylver

          Thanks Eric for the heads up.
          I had completed that mission all except for going back to the house and picking up the trophy.

  4. Exiledmordread

    Will Toussaint be repaired after you finished the game?
    Because i want it to be beautifull again !

  5. Redsun

    It wouldn’t let me hang the Portrait of Iris and Olgierd anywhere in the house. Don’t know about Starry Night or Hemmelfart though.

  6. Picer

    Im still on my first run of the game and wondering what will happen if i play on new game+
    Will the house revert to its 1st state ? Or all the upgrade will still there ? Having same question too bout the runewright cause idk if i should really work for the money
