"Spiced wine for ya? It's a family recipe."
―Evette San[src]

Evette San is a Nord merchant who lives in Solitude. During the day, she can be found near the well in Solitude or in her house. She sells spiced wine, and is the only vendor to regularly do so.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

The Spiced Wine[edit | edit source]

She asks the Dragonborn to help her with releasing her shipment from the East Empire Company. She will then offer two bottles of spiced wine as a reward.

Burning of King Olaf[edit | edit source]

She will give the Dragonborn two bottles of spiced wine during the festival.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

"Spiced wine for ya? It's a family recipe."

How are your sales? "They're... adequate. Honestly, I rely on the business brought in by the Burning of King Olaf, and that's not likely to happen this year."
What's the Burning of King Olaf? "It's a great big festival put on by the bards, every year. They burn an effigy of old King Olaf. It's quite a bit of fun. The bards give out spiced wine during the festival, so they put in a big order. And then, for weeks after, demand is so high, I can barely keep up. But with the death of High King Torygg, the Festival has been declared "in poor taste." So it looks like it won't happen this year."

"Stay warm and keep sober. It's the two things I know for sure will make life better."

The Spiced Wine[edit | edit source]

"You wouldn't have a few minutes to run down to the docks would you?"

What do you need from the docks? "Well, I've got a shipment of Spices the East Empire Company is holding up. I need someone to convince them to release it."

I'm not really heading that way "Ah well. I'll keep looking for someone. Thanks anyway."

Shouldn't be a problem. "Great. Get back to me when you're done and I'll give you something for your time."
Is your spiced wine made from a secret recipe? "Oh, yes. A secret family recipe. The only good thing my father Octieve ever did. In fact, it's so good, no one else in Skyrim even tries to make any."

"Good luck out there. Seems like a tough time to be wandering Skyrim."
(After talking to Vittoria)
"A wanderer like you needs some fire in the veins. Some spiced wine?"

The East Empire Company is sending up your spices. "Thank you so much. I swear it's a fight with them every shipment. Here's something for your troubles."

Burning of King Olaf[edit | edit source]

"Spiced Wine here. First cup is paid for by the college."
"Thank you so much. The festival has really increased my sales."

Giving away your spiced wine, eh? "Just one bottle per customer. Except for the man who saved the festival. Here's a couple bottles for you."

Conversations[edit | edit source]

Aia Arria[edit | edit source]

Aia: "You know, my father collected exotic alcohols."
Evette: "Really?"
Aia: "Rum from Hammerfell, mulled wine from Daggerfall, and the like." or "None of what he collected tasted as good as your Spiced Wine, Evette." or "I'm still finding your Spiced Wine to be the best drink I've ever tasted."
Evette: "Thanks, Aia. That means a lot." or "Glad to hear it, Aia."

Ataf[edit | edit source]

Ataf: "I'll take a bottle of spiced wine."
Evette: "I haven't known you to drink before, Ataf."
Ataf: "Viarmo is trying to get Elisif to allow the Burning of King Olaf. I don't want to look like I don't know how to drink in front of the other bards."

Evette: "A bottle of spiced wine for ya, Ataf?"

Ataf: "No thank you. I'm still feeling sick from the festival."

Illdi[edit | edit source]

Evette: "A bit of warming wine, Illdi? You know you can't resist."

Illdi: "Not fair. You're well aware I can't seem to get warm here." or "Do you know I look forward to Burning of King Olaf each year just because of the fire?"

Jawanan[edit | edit source]

Jawanan: "I think I may wait until the Burning of King Olaf to have a Spiced Wine."

Evette: "You and everyone else. Word is it may not happen this year though."

Octieve San[edit | edit source]

Evette: "Father, could you clean up the house a little while I'm away?"
Octieve: "Maybe. I'll see if I feel like it."
Evette: "I'm on my feet all day. Can you please do this one thing for me?"
Octieve: "Sure, whatever."

Octieve: "Where've you been all day?"
Evette: "At the market, father."
Octieve: "Well, did you bring back any mead?"
Evette: "I barely make enough for us to eat as it is, father. You can't just drink it all away."

Octieve: "Humph. Some daughter you are."

Rorlund[edit | edit source]

Rorlund: "Ah a few bottles of Spiced Wine should hit the spot."

Evette: "Of course. And I'm sure it's mostly for ceremonial purposes."

Silana Petreia[edit | edit source]

Silana: "Are your sales going well?" or "I hope the Divines have been keeping you well."
Evette: "Not too bad. A few of the guests from the upcoming wedding have placed orders." or "They seem to when you're around, Silana."
Silana: "It should be quite the affair. Nice to have something happy in the midst of the war."
Evette: "Vittoria is practically glowing."

Sorex Vinius[edit | edit source]

Evette: "Spiced Wine for The Winking Skeever?"
Sorex: "Actually just a bottle for me today. I'm thinking of giving it to Vivenne."
Evette: "Sure, Sorex. Just like you did the last one."
Sorex: "The last one was warm up."

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "I swear, I left another bottle right here."
  • "You see my father Octieve around here, stay clear. He'll only ask you for money, or mead."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If she dies, the Dragonborn will also receive 100 Gold as inheritance.
  • It's possible for her to send hired thugs after stealing from her or killing her father, Octieve San.
