The “Old World” Approach 

Many of our clients choose to expand their cellars by creating unique batches of wine out of the fruit from their gardens and local farmers markets. The flavour of the wine is then completely up to you! Fruit wines can be made with; apples, peaches, wild grapes, raspberries, figs, pears, plums, blackberries, and so much more. For our fruit wines we use an “old world” method that involves hand crushing the fruit, a specific stirring schedule, and our hardwood fruit press to get the flavours just right.
Once your wine is ready to be bottled, we’ll give you a call and you can come in to bottle your wine like the pros. We provide a free set of bottles with every first visit , and print custom labels for all your bottles.

Give us a call or drop by today to choose your brew or vintage and create a unique flavour that’s all your own. Life just got a little sweeter!
