Choosing Your wine

Selecting the right wine is an individual taste and can sometimes be challenging. The 3 most talked-about wine traits are oak, body, and sweetness. While some wines can be light and fruity and are meant to be consumed young, others are heavy, lots of oak and tannins, and take time to “come around”. This is a term called esterification. It is the alcohol mixed in with all the unique ingredients that take time to soften up. Otherwise known as aging. Whites are generally consumed sooner than reds but reds usually have a longer shelf life. We can help you choose when you come in to start a batch.

Caring for your wine

Upon arriving home with your wine, please keep bottles upright for 10 to 14 days before storing on their side. Once turned, it is important to store wines in a dark, cool place.

Red wine is generally served at room temperature, and white wine (including Zinfandel) is generally served chilled. Wines are best when consumed within 5 years. However, 28-day kits are best consumed within 24 months. Red wines last longer than white wines.

Wine Kits: A closer look

The less expensive kits have more concentrate in them. So more water is added to make 23 litres. As the price increases so does the amount of juice and quality. Also where the grapes/juice come from change the cost structure. Some kits are not location-specific while others are. Usually, location-specific wines are more expensive. The more expensive wines do need more time to age. Bottom line? The best wines cost the most and take the longest to age. If you need wine right away do the less expensive 4-week kits and drink right away. If you can’t wait too long but want better quality do the middle-of-the-road 5-week kit. All kits (other than Ice wine and Port styles) produce 23 litres or about 28-30 bottles.

Bottling OPtions

You can bring in your own wine bottles but they must be CLEAN. We have a free bottle sanitizer on site. You MUST remove or deface commercial wine labels from your bottles before you are permitted to fill them up with your own wine. 750 ml clear or green bottles may be purchased on-site at a cost of about $1.25 each. Since we have no control over your cleanliness we cannot guarantee product consistency when you bottle in your used bottles.

Our Wine Varietals

4 Week Wines

Heritage Estates 4-Week House Wines

Our most economical offerings. These 4-week wines are a great choice for craft winemakers who want a light, pleasant wine that is ready to drink right away. Heritage Estates wines are targeted at customers who are looking for a quick turnaround, are not interested in cellaring, and want the lowest price possible.

WineXpert Classic: Premium 4 Week

WineXpert Classic kits skillfully blend vintage-class varietal grape juices and concentrates. A noticeable step up from our basic 4-week wines, these kits have regional grapes and more developed flavors. White wines will be ready to drink relatively quickly while reds will appreciate cellaring for at least 6 weeks in the bottle.
