The Village Winery carries a large variety of winemaking kits. Each product is tested to determine whether it meets our exacting standards and merits a place on our shelves. Our premium kits are constituted primarily from varietal grape juice, the highest level of product available, sourced from around the world.
Many of our premium reds and whites also include crushed grape packs, so the wine can ferment on crushed grapes during the first week.
Each batch can make the equivalent of 30 - 750ml bottles. Prices quoted are for the 'kits' or ingredients only. To make wine 'on premise' the regular fee of $55 applies, with no extra charges for corks, shrink caps or customizable labels.
