From Our Editors
At the family-owned "U-brew" emporium Rosie's Grape Stop, a helpful staff provides customers with the equipment, ingredients, and work space required for crafting wines, ciders, coolers, and beers. After helping customers find a desired drink kit, the specialists assist with the production of a first batch, which can be picked up or delivered by a stork four to eight weeks later. Wine kits include a pinot grigio Italian riserva, which blooms with fresh citrus notes and lively spiciness, as well as a merlot global cuvée, which exudes a slight grassy scent and subtle fruit flavours. Sparkling cider kits enable guests to concoct refreshing cranberry, pear, or nectarine beverages, and their beer kits feature lagers, ales, and stouts that free grains and yeast from their usual suspension in bread prisons.
