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

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

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:
