What You'll Get
Wines, like a comfortable T-shirt or a hard candy left to ripen under the couch, only get better with age. Taste the passing of time with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a winemaking workshop at Grapefully Yours in New Westminster (a $160 value, tax included). As part of this deal customers also receive a $50 voucher to use toward any future purchase.
The experienced vintners at Grapefully Yours help guests transform grape juice into batches of red and white wine in hands-on workshops. Participants who prefer white wine can brew chamblaise or delicate, slightly-tart riesling, and those who favour reds can concoct merlot or an oaky cabernet sauvignon to stain lips a specific shade of rouge. Brewing specialists help participants combine yeast, filtered water, and clippings from mature wine trees in a fermentation container, where the components synthesize into a sippable brew. Participants return approximately four weeks later to bottle their wine—23 litres worth—into containers of their choice. Attendees can bring along their own bottles, jugs, or waterproof suitcases to carry libations home, or they can purchase 750-millilitre bottles ($1) on-site. Labels, corks, and shrink capsules are included, and participants can upgrade to another type of wine or request customized labels for an additional fee.

About Grapefully Yours
For 23 years, Grapefully Yours has been focusing on providing their clients with an original alternative to buying expensive retail wines. Guests come to the winery to select quality products that suit their taste the most and the wine-making process begins. After 4 to 6 weeks, they revisit the place to experience the bottling process and sample their very own wine.
