Q: How much time do I need to commit and how complicated is the process to make my own premium private-label wine?
A: It really doesn’t require that much time. The Winemaking “Semester” runs approximately 10 months and is broken down into 4 simple, fun-filled “classes” that are about 1-2 hours each.
Q: A barrel contains about 20 cases of wine, what if I don’t want that much wine?
A: Small groups and families can share the fun of winemaking by making just one barrel together (or as many as they want) and then splitting up the wine. We also offer Winemaking shares in as little as 1/8 of a barrel (30 bottles)
Q: When is Wine Making Season?
A: Our Fall season (California): Harvest time is usually in September with Winemaking October and November. In the Spring season (South America): Harvest is usually in April with Winemaking in May and June

What Our Clients Are Saying

“We had a wonderful experience throughout the process. Mike and Frank were extremely knowledgeable and guided us through every step of the way. I have always enjoyed drinking wine, and now that I understand the process of making it, I have a greater appreciation for a good bottle. We made a Tuscan blend this time, thinking of trying a white wine next time, or perhaps some beer brewing. If you are in the area and are curious about the process, stop in for one of their events, try some wine and learn about the wine making process. You won’t be disappointed!”
