Wine can be made at home, or on-premise in our store. Here’s what you need to know to get started.
Craft winemaking in our store
In three easy steps that will take you approximately not more than an hour, you will end up with 30 bottles of the wine of your choice.
Step 1 – MAKING THE WINE
On Day One, you will choose the varietal of wine you would like to make. When paying for your kit, we’ll have you sign a little paperwork and let you start the wine by sprinkling the yeast in the grape juice.
Step 2 – WE TAKE CARE OF YOUR WINE UNTIL IT IS BOTTLING TIME
While your precious wine is under our care, we will rack it off the sediment, degas it to speed up the ageing 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 your wine. We will give you a call when the wine is ready to be bottled.
Step 3 – BOTTLING THE WINE
Bottling Day has arrived! You will come in with your clean and label-free bottles or buy them in our store. We have the equipment to have them sanitized. We will help you bottle and label your bottles with your labels and shrink tops.
Leave in less than an hour ( + 30 min for each additional batch).
Craft winemaking at home
Making wine at home is an enjoyable hobby that offers even greater personal rewards, like being able to say “I made this” when friends compliment you on the wine you are serving. Many winemakers enter their wines in amateur winemaking competitions. For them, the pride that comes with winning a medal is a great feeling.
If you choose to make the wine yourself at home, you just need to make a small investment in an equipment kit (that can be used over and over). All the instructions needed to make great wine at home are included with the wine kit. We at Wine Kitz will help you through all the detail and provide you with support throughout the winemaking process. The process takes only about 3 hours spread over 4 to 8 weeks.
