The Process

Know nothing about wine?? No problem!! 

Winemaking is a simple and fun hobby. Just simply drop in and we’ll walk you through the process.

 Step-by-Step Process
  1. Visit Wine Krafting Inc. No appointment needed.
  2. Choose your favourite wine
  3. We’ll add the juice to a pail.
  4. You’ll add a package of bentonite (a preliminary clarifier) & yeast.

That’s it! You’ve started a batch of wine!

  1. Wait for 4-8 weeks (depending on the wine chosen)
  2. We’ll do the fermenting, clarifying, and filtering.
  3. On your slip there is a “bottling date”  you can come in anytime on that day or after. No appointment is needed.

Bottling Day

  1. Bring in your empty wine bottles (a batch makes 23 litres… which is 30 x 750 ml bottles). We sell brand new bottles if you require.
  2. We’ll show you how to use one of our two heavy-duty bottle washers which do 28-30 bottles at a time, and vacuum filling machine.
  3. Corking is easy with our pneumatic power corkers.
  4. Shrink caps & labels are also included to add that final personal touch.
  5. NEW:  we can personalize your wine labels. Have your winery name put on your very own vintage.
