Winemaking has changed drastically from the past when it was an inexpensive alternative to store bought wines – not only has the quality improved, but so has the experience and product offerings that mirror store-bought wine trends; allowing you to craft a wine similar to one you are currently buying.

There are so many more reasons though to craft your own wine, and here are just a few:

It’s fun.

Craft winemaking is a unique experience that’s stress-free. You’ll have fun learning more about wine throughout the process and enjoy sharing it with friends and family.

It’s cost-effective.

Craft wine that is competitive to store bought wine both in quality, varietals and in price.

By crafting your own wine, you’ll always have bottles on hand with fewer trips to the local liquor store. For reference, the standard kit produced 30 x 750ml bottles of wine.

It’s green.

It’s customizable.

Customize your by making it a sweeter taste profile, adding more oak, or making the kit without sulphites – the opportunities to personalize it to your unique taste are endless. And once crafted, the extra fun part is naming your wine and creating a custom label to adorn your bottles with!

It’s craftsmanship!

In a world of convenience, there’s something to be said about appreciating the time it takes to make something. Crafting wine is not an instant gratification hobby, but we assure you it’s worth the wait… besides it’s only a 4-8 week wait depending on the kit you craft!
