The vineyards were originally taken over by the agents of the Defias Brotherhood and their leader, Garrick Padfoot. It was here that human players had their first encounter with the Brotherhood, fighting their minions and retrieving the stolen property of Milly Osworth. Since the Cataclysm, the vineyards are under attack by the forces of the Blackrock clan, who are burning them to the ground.
