Noble Grape arms amateur vintners and would-be brewmasters with the equipment and supplies they need to craft their own reds, whites, and brews at home. The store's winemaking starter package includes 15 items crucial to turning lowly grape juice into nectar worthy of Bacchus, including a fermenting device, racking accoutrements, a 23-litre glass carboy, a bottle filler, sanitizer, and a moody yet talented wine whisperer to tame the grapes. Oenophiles can choose from a stock of 25 Vintners Reserve wine kits designed to yield 23 litres in varietals ranging from pleasantly acidic chardonnay to bold, palate-blanketing cabernet sauvignon, or opt for a Twisted Mist wine-cocktail kit in flavours such as strawberry margarita and mojito. This option also includes $20 off a future wine-kit purchase.
With Noble Grape's Festa brew kits, aspiring microbrewers can craft 23 litres of their own unfermented beer from Magnotta Brewery in Ontario, available in nine styles, including continental pilsner, pale ale, and double oatmeal stout. Noble Grape backs all of its merchandise with a satisfaction guarantee decreeing that customers unhappy with their libations for any reason will have them replaced for free and the offending liquids sentenced to evaporation without parole.
