Winemaking On Premise
Have you been wanting to make your own wine for an event, wedding, or another special occasion but don't want to hassle with the process of making sure it turns out right?
Well now you and a small party* can come in, we will help you make it, we will take care of all the details, and then you can come back and bottle it when it is ready!
Your batch will yield 28-30 750ml bottles of wine
along with personalized labels and sleeves.
Some people don't have the time or space to keep up with the demands of making wine at their own place. So we take care of all that for you! All that is needed of you is to come in and make it, then come in and bottle it 6-8 weeks later!
Whether you are making a wine for your wedding, for someone's special day, or for another occasion, we make sure the product you take home is the best it could be. We know how much you are looking forward to the final product, so we carefully pay attention to the details while you are gone.
We allow consumption on premise, both while you are making the wine and while you are bottling it! Also, we encourage you to bring a little "picnic basket" of snacks to nibble on while we bottle! Besides, it's your day anyhow!
step 1 - Making the wine
On Day One, you will choose* the varietal of wine you would like to make. If you'd like, we have over 30 varieties of wines available for sampling if you need help choosing a kit.
When paying for your kit, we'll have you sign a little paperwork* and discuss what you want to have on your personalized labels. You will email us what you'd like by the following week.
Afterwards, we'll take your party into our winery where we will assist you in making your batch(es) of wine! We will try to have all the equipment set up for you ahead of time to skip the boring sanitation part. Then we will help you along the process until your wine is all made and we are ready to put it into storage with all your information attached to it!
And yes, if you'd like to purchase some, you can drink wine while you make wine.
Leave about an hour for Day One's activities + 30 min for each additional batch.
step 2 - we take care of it until bottling
While you are at home eagerly awaiting bottling day, we will make sure that it is all taken care of until then.
While your precious wine is under our care, we will rack it off the sediment, degas it to speed up the aging process, clarify it to drop out more particulates, and finally we will filter it for a beautiful sparkle.
This will take approximately 6-8 weeks (depending on the kit and store scheduling) before you come back to bottle. We will set up the bottling day on Day One so that you know when to expect to come in.
step 3 - bottling the wine
Bottling Day has arrived! Your party will come in and we will have everything sanitized and ready for you. We will help you bottle and label your bottles with your personalized labels (yes, by law every bottle needs to be labeled before it leaves our premises).
We will finish by helping you put the shrink sleeves on your bottles to complete your look!
Leave about an hour and a half for Bottling day + 30 min for each additional batch.
And yes, feel free to bring a little "picnic basket" to nibble on during Bottling Day!
