How to complete the Aroma of the Past Quest in the Genshin Impact Of Ballads and Brews event
Upon starting the quest from the Festive Anecdotes menu, fast forward the in-game time by two days (two rotations). Once that’s done, head to the Knights of Favonius Headquarters to meet Noelle, Sucrose, and Razor. After speaking with them, teleport to Springvale to meet even more friends—and together, you’ll convince Diona to mix Razor’s wine for you.
Next, you need to head to the giant tree in Windrise, where you’ll meet Venti and bury the wine to ferment. Then fast forward the in-game time by one day, anytime between 10:00 to 14:00. Once that’s done, return to Springvale to enjoy the Weinlesefest with friends to complete the Event Quest. After this, you can meet and interact with various playable Monstadt characters all over the nation.
Additionally, you can rewatch the heartwarming cutscene at the end of the quest called The Wind Returns for the Fairbrew on Genshin Impact’s official YouTube channel below.
