The wine kits we carry make about 23L of wine (just under 30 bottles), except some of the specialty dessert wine kits, which make half as much. We offer a great selection of wines, from generic 4 week kits, to 5 and 6 week country specific and our high end 8 week and limited edition kits. These numbers indicate how long it takes to make the wine, and most wines would then benefit from some ageing. The smaller the kit to start with, the sooner it will be finished and the sooner it can be consumed.
Like shopping for wine in the liquor store we have many varietals at many different quality levels. The cost of making wine versus buying from a liquor store is about a third! Please contact us with what your favorite wine and wine varietal is and let us try to match it with something close from our wine list.
We will be posting all the wines we offer very soon we are just waiting on one of our companies to release their new product line!

What does in-store winemaking involve?
It's as simple as picking out a wine you would like to make, letting us prepare it for you to sprinkle the yeast (that makes it your wine, not ours), and coming back when the wine is ready to bottle. We do the steps in between, filter the wine, call you for an appointment, and provide guidance for you to use the filling and corking machines. In about 45 minutes, you take home about 30 of the 750ml bottles of wine.
