The Wine Making Process
Wine Making Process
1. Choose your style of wine.
Our knowledgeable staff can help steer you in the right direction. Are you looking for a red or white wine? What type of wine would you usually pick up at a liquor store? Do you prefer a light or heavy bodied wine? These are some examples of the question we may ask in order to help choose the perfect wine for you.
2. Mix the ingredients and pitch the yeast.
Don’t worry, this step is simple. The law requires that you help start your batch of wine. Our staff will assist you with this 5 minute process.
3. This is where we step in.
Our service is to take your wine through the fermenting, racking, rack and fining and filtering stages. This process can take from 5 weeks and up to 30 weeks depending on which quality of product and process you choose.
4. Bottle your wine.
When your wine is ready we’ll give you a call. You return to the store and bottle your wine. We have all the automated equipment required to make this a quick and easy process. Each kit makes approximately 31 (750 ml) bottles. Labels, corks and shrink caps are included.
5. Take your wine home and enjoy it with family and friends.
Your wine will tease the pallet of every avid wine enthusiast. Try a different wine the next time and slowly grow an impressive collection of your favourite wines.
