The Grape Skin difference

All Cellar Craft red wines contain crushed grape packs. These grape packs contain skins and seeds of red wine grapes that have been pressed for their juice. The skins and seeds contain tannins which provide color, flavor, structure and that astringent mouth feel so characteristic of red wines. By fermenting the juice with the crushed grape skins, the wine has prolonged exposure to the skins. Allowing for more tannins to be extracted enhancing the wine’s flavor, aromatics, color and body, giving you a richer fuller wine.


Cheeky Monkey

Limited Release Kits Blends that rock

Excellent alternative for the Coastal Sunset we all know so well. This years' Summer limited release kits are from the Cheeky Monkey line. Two ‘Blends that rock’! The pre-ordered kits are reserved. Extra kits ordered for those who missed the chance to pre-order. Please be quick. First come first served.

Both blends come as a 10 L, 4 weeks kit, complete with plastic labels. In store first week of August.

 ‘Blends that rock’!

Three Dog White: a dry white from Spain featuring the Torrontes-Chardonnay-Viognier blend. Red Zeppelin: a red blend from Italy; the Nebbiolo-Barbera. Each of the grapes contribute complementary characteristics in their blends. Both white and red produce a very pleasurable wine and do fine as a dining wine as well as a wine to sip away on your deck. Both blends come as a 10 L, 4 weeks kit, complete with plastic labels.


Torrontes-Chardonnay-Viognier: 12%, Light-Medium bodied, Un-oaked. Can be made dry or off-dry to meet your preference. The traditional and Mediterranean character of Spain.

This dry white opens with a vibrant tropical fruit and floral bouquet, and will quickly have you grooving to the tune of lush peach and apricot with hints of citrus. Refreshing acidic, the long fruity finish will have you up on your feet chanting for more.

Nebbiolo-Barbera: 13%, Full bodied, Oaked, Dry. Undisputable Italian.

This headliner red rocks ripe red berry flavors and tart cherry tang, balancing it out with harmonious earthy floral notes and fresh acidity. Moderate tannins back it all up. The juicy cherry aroma is highlighted with the subtle scent of tar and roses. The wine is worthy, you will like this.

Oak Barrel aging

Demanding wine lovers, please pay attention!

Last year we introduced oak-barrels. They have proven very popular and we decided to order extra barrels to add to our capacity. Barrels are for sale to the home brewer, as well as for in store Oak Barrel aging. Make sure you reserve your spot on our list and have your wine enriched with an Oak Barrel Aging treatment.

In short:
Oak barrel aging enhances the aging process. The wine displays a more intense color and aromatic complexity of vanilla, caramel, smoke and spice. Oak barrel wine has a clearer appearance and produces a more pleasant texture and mouth feel. An oak barrel treatment brings you as close you can get to a commercial, store-bought estate wine. A true new dimension to u-brew winemaking.
