Winemaking Process

Your winemaking process begins with a consultation where we help you select your wine of choice, prepare your grape juice, and add your yeast. It’s as simple as that.

The juice will start fermenting and the winemaking process has begun. This part of the winemaking process only takes 10 minutes and no appointment is necessary. Then you wait 4-8 weeks, depending on which wine you have selected. Or drop by at any time to see it’s progress!

Once your wine is ready for bottling we will call you to arrange a bottling appointment. Your batch of wine makes 30 standard 750 ml bottles of wine. You can buy a set of 30 new 750 ml bottles from us or you can recycle and re-use any wine bottles you have already ( you can also re-use different sized bottles and wine bottles that have screw caps ).

At the bottling appointment, you will sanitize your bottles and our automatic bottling and corking machines will fill and cork your bottles with your wine. Then we finish off the process with labels and decorative neck sleeves.

Crafting your wine is great fun and only takes about 30 minutes per batch.
