Reasons to Make Wine

Every winemaker has a story. We’d love to hear yours.

There are so many reasons to make wine and we love to hear each and every story. Whether you are a first-time winemaker or have been making wine for years, we consistently hear that there’s always something new to learn.

Home Winemakers – Elevate Your Wine to Award-Winning Quality

Move your winemaking pastime out of your home and into our facility with state of the art equipment and the expertise of our experienced sommelier and winemakers. Making wine with us will alleviate the expenses for home equipment, improve your overall winemaking experience and most importantly, elevate the quality of your wine.

Family Tradition

Many of our students continue the time-honored tradition of winemaking that began in their family generations ago. Carry on your family’s legacy of winemaking or begin a new family tradition that your children and grandchildren will experience year after year.

Stocking Your Cellar With High Quality Wine For Less

For those that love to drink premium quality wine, making a barrel at The School of Wine is not only an amazing experience, but depending on the varietal, each bottle can cost as little as $10.00 per bottle. We only use the highest quality grapes, so the wine you’ll be creating would typically sell for twice that at retail.

Barrels to Mark Special Occasions

One of the most exciting reasons to make a barrel is to mark a special occasion, which not only makes the memories last, but is a unique way to create favors for weddings, anniversary and birthday parties. Read more about our custom wedding favors.

  • Select customizable labels from a variety of designs for all occasions
  • One barrel of wine yields about 240 bottles of wine – depending on the varietal, the cost is as low as $10.00 per bottle.

Remember, the winemaking process takes almost a year, so plan ahead to celebrate your special moment.
