This achievement is highly missable!

This achievement is quite involved and you can begin working towards it once you read the “Wine Wars” note on the notice board outside the Cockatrice Inn. This will trigger the “Wine Wars: Belgaard” quest. Follow the objective to the auction near Plegmund’s Bridge and it will trigger a cutscene with Liam Coronata and Matilda Vermentino.

Liam will give you the “Wine Wars: Coronata” quest and Matilda will give you the “Wine Wars: Vementino” quest. Start with Matilda’s quest and when you reach the objective that contains the elegant letter guarded by Archespores, kill the beasts, read the letter, and then halt progress on this quest IMEDIATELY.

Switch your quest to “Wine Wars: Coronata” and work through the objectives until you reach another letter. Read it and a new quest will trigger. It’s called “Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina.” Switch over to this quest right away and begin working on it. If you progress any further with either of the previous Wine Wars quests, you will miss the achievement (see note below).

After completing the main objective of “Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina,” return to Liam and Matilda and they will give you a new quest entitled “Wine Wars: Consorting.” Complete this quest through and through, it’s fairly simple. Return to Liam and Matilda again once you’re done and after a short cutscene, you will get another new quest: “Wine Wars: Belgraad.” Complete this quest as you normally would – again, it’s straightforward. Once the five objectives have been completed, wait or meditate for three full days and then go see Liam and Matilda.

When you return, they will reward generously (they name a wine after you!) and the achievement will finally unlock.

NOTE: This achievement is missable because if you fully complete either Liam’s or Matilda’s individual Wine Wars quest, only one of them receive Belgraad vineyard and you won’t have a wine named after you. Thus, make sure to stop progress on both “Wine Wars: Coronata” and “Wine Wars: Vermentino” after reading the letter in each quest.

Strangely enough, I may have found a much quicker and easier way to complete this long series of quests and get the achievement, but I'll need help to confirm because I'm not sure if I got a friendly and lucky glitch or if that was intended.

So when I wanted to start this quest, I went to the location on foot and came across the "guarded treasure" shown on this screenshot:

In this guarded treasure I found the letter that triggered "Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina" which is really weird because I hadn't begun the series of quests yet, I hadn't even talked to the PNJs, so I didn't do anything for them etc... but I was able to trigger the quest nonetheless.

Anyway, I decided to track the new quest (so the "Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina one") so I went to the corresponding location, killed the centipede, got the note and the quest was accomplished without any following quests triggered. I decided to track the original quest again "Wine Wars: Belgaard" and when I arrived to the location, Liam and Matilda were arguing and Geralt took part in the discussion saying that he somehow knew what was the problem, and I directly got the "Wine Wars: Consorting" ; from there I just followed the normal path of the series of quest and ended up getting the achievement.

So in the end I didn't have to go through the "Wine Wars: Coronata" and "Wine Wars: Vementino" and I didn't have to be careful about reading letters, halting the quests at the very right moment, etc, so it's a much quicker and much more "braindead" way of doing the quests because you don't have to think about anything ; that's pretty much straightforward.

It seems weird because this specific way of doing the quests looks intended (according to the conversation Geralt, Matilda and Liam had when I first met them) but I find it hard to believe that no one before me found out about it.

I would like one of you to try what I did to verify if that was just a random nice glitch or if this is just for everyone else, which would save some troubles to all of you:

-First take the "Wine Wars: Belgaard" quest but don't do it
-Then go to the guarded treasure shown on the image, where you're supposed to find a letter that triggers the "Wine Wars: The Deus in the Machina" when you read it.
-If you didn't get any letter there, well that means I got lucky and you can just follow the other solutions to guide you through the quests.
-But if you were able to trigger the quest, then do it
-When it's done, just follow the "Wine Wars: Belgaard" quest, complete it and every other quests you receive after it and you should get the achievement.

I hope my wall of text wasn't too confusing for you, please don't downvote the solution untill you've tried, I'm just trying to help here. If my "solution" happens to be wrong after verification, I'll just delete it. Thanks.
