How it works

Create Your Own
Quality Wines

You don't have to be a sommelier, vintner or chemist to make great wine for you, your family and guests to enjoy. For over 20 years, Vintner's Cellar has helped people who enjoy wine to produce quality wine for a fraction of the cost of purchasing wine from a retail location.

The process is easy, and we're here to guide you through, every step of the way. For 30 minutes of your time, make 30 bottles of fine wine! Just choose your variety, add the yeast, and come back later to bottle it. We look after the rest. Here's exactly how it works…

  • Step 1
    Select Your Wine

    Vintner's Cellar carries over 60 wine varieties and quality levels for you to choose from.

    Choose Your Wine
  • Step 2
    Add your yeast

    Once you've selected the variety you'd like to brew, you add the yeast to the quality wine juice to start the fermentation process. That's all you have to do until bottling time in about 6 weeks!

    Add Your Yeast
  • Step 3
    Fermentation

    Your wine will ferment for four weeks. The yeast works with the natural sugars in the juice to create alcohol and develop flavour.

    Fermentation
  • Step 4
    Racking

    Two weeks into fermentation, we siphon your wine into a glass carboy and remove the large scale sediment produced from the fermentation process.

    Racking
  • Step 5
    Stabilizing

    Now it's time to stop fermentation. We siphon your wine to another glass carboy, and add a stabilizing agent to completely stop any further fermentation.

  • Step 6
    Filtering

    We then filter your wine using a 10 pad filter machine to remove any elements that would cloud your wine resulting in a crystal clear wine that sparkles.

    Filtering
  • Step 7
    De-Gassing

    Just prior to your bottling appointment (don't worry, we will contact you!), we will remove as much CO2 from your wine as we can. This allows for a wine you can drink immediately and will still improve with aging. It is worth noting that we are one of the few vintner's who do this!!

    De-gassing
  • Step 8
    Bottling

    You will bring your bottles, or purchase ours. Bottles are sanitized and cleaned using our state-of-the-art bottle washer. We will help you to bottle, cork, label and shrink wrap your wine – it is easy, fun and fast!
