We love teaching others about wine. Through the winemaking experience, we found that people come the first time for the wine and come back again for the community & the fun. Over 85% of our winemakers are return clients!

But, the first time is the toughest. People get anxious about organizing a group & wonder if they have enough people to share the expense of 20 cases of wine. $3700 is a big number!

Then, what kind of wine? What is the best date to choose for all the folks participating? Now I have to collect their $$?! Whew!

Relax, we have you covered! By yourself or with a few friends who would like to join you for a case or two, you can buy-in on a barrel & we do the rest. The date, the wine selection & the money collection is handled by us. Meet new people & come make a da wine!
