Hello all!

I need a riddle for Goodberry Wine, the adventurers will have to use clues from the riddle to find out that the answer is wine, as well as locate a jar of it. Based in Eberron in Sharn. I think the difficulty in making the riddle as well as solving it is ensuring there is enough hints to determine that it isn't a standard potion rather the Goodberry wine. All help is appreciated!

How does this sound?

"I'll quench your thirst
with my good tasting flavor
and heal your body
like a magical savior
no alchemist can brew my berries.
Only those who know my nature."

Knowing the answer? It sounds good. My advice is try it on people without revealing the answer, and see if they can guess it.

Born in captivity, I need to breathe but am not alive. I can be young or old can not die. I contain both truth and health.

Edit: sorry, I didn't see that you had posted your own riddle. It looks very good.

No worries, I appreciate the input. I suppose I just want to ensure that there are enough clues to lead them to the answer. These are the current hints that I tried to include, do you think it's enough?

"I'll quench your thirst - drinkable liquid
with my good tasting flavor - "good" for goodberry
and heal your body - healing qualities of goodberry
like a magical savior - goodberry wine is a magical item
no alchemist can brew my berries. - Only druids can make goodberries, also rules out standard potion, also berries for "goodberry"
Only those who know my nature." - Nature again pointing to Druid

I think it should be enough but I wouldn't mind adding some more. Mostly because I'm the only person really familiar with Eberron I'll be helping them fudge there way to the results.

Conjured from nature's hand
By a guardian* of the land
Mastered by the vintner's art
Health and comfort are my part.

*Pronounce GUARD-yan, not GUARD-i-AN

It is not explicit, but matches standard riddle forms.
