When you make wine with an RJS Craft Winemaking Academy store you can expect:


  • Exclusive wine kits only available at Academy stores.
  • Early access to limited release wine kits.
  • Extensive knowledge of wine varietals and wine styles.
  • Winemaking expertise to help educate and guide home winemakers.
  • Reassurance that the winemaking premises are well maintained to the highest level of sanitation.
  • Friendly and efficient service at each stage of the winemaking process.

We understand that only by delivering on our collective promise of consistently high standards will craft winemaking customers return to make wine with us time and again. We guarantee that every time our customers craft wine at an RJS Academy store, they will take home outstanding wines to enjoy and share with family and friends.

It is our hope that by delighting our existing customers each and every time they make wine, they will also want to introduce other wine lovers and potential craft wine makers to the craft, allowing more North Americans to experience the rewards of crafting wine for themselves.
