STEP ONE: One person can make wine or sixty people can make wine, as there is no required number of people! Set up a two hour reservation with us by calling or emailing us. The day you arrive, one of our wine stewards will work with you and your group. You will be given an educational summary of the wines we have available to make, allowing you to choose six to sample. From the six samples, you can select however many wines you wish to make that day. During your tasting, feel free to order food from our delicious scratch-made menu. After your decision about which wine(s) you are making is made, we will get our Winemkaing Lab ready! You and your party will then move into our Winemaking Lab, aprons provided, and learn the hands-on process of primary fermentation from putting the juice into a bucket to getting the yeast activated . Once your wine is made, we will hold onto it for about 10-15 weeks so our in-house winemakers can do their magic and get it ready for you to bottle!
STEP TWO: Our in-house winemakers monitor primary fermentation for 10-14 days, then check the specific gravity of your wine. Once the specific gravity has reached where it needs to be, they will mix a few more ingredients into your wine depending on the type of wine it is, rack it off into a new glass carboy and let the flavors develop over time. They test your wine by tasting it to see how it is developing in those next 10-15 weeks. Our winemakers then filter off the sediment and lees to give you a nice clear wine ready to drink! One of our team members will reach out to you to schedule a bottling date. During your bottling, you get to choose a cap color to go with your personal label. After corking, capping and labeling, you get to take your wine home with you to enjoy!
Pricing is determined by the wine and the batch size. When making or adopting wine, you have a couple options:
*Please note, all participants who wish to sample wines for the wine-making or adoption process are subject to a $20 or $25 tasting fee (depending on size of party).
*Please allow up to 2 hours when making your wine and 2 hours when bottling your wine.
Our staff helps you every step, including selecting your wine bottle style and designing your custom label. You also receive bottles, labels, shrink caps, and corks as part of your wine making experience.
