- C$79 for a premium winemaking experience (a C$159 value)
On your first visit, which takes approximately 15 minutes, choose from a selection of Fruit Wines, or choose a specially-selected red or white wine. During the visit you will also have the opportunity to order custom-designed labels, ($1 each) and choose from a selection of bottle types and sizes (from $1 each) to dress your finished wine—prepackaged sets of 30 labels are also available for $3. Before you leave staff will book your bottling appointment, which will be four to five weeks later. During the second and final visit, which also takes approximately 15 minutes, you will bottle and package your 23 litres of wine, enough to fill 30-31 standard 750 ml bottles. Customers may bring their own bottles or purchase bottles (starting at $1 each). Corks and foils are included at no additional charge.
Sheppard Wine Works
Sheppard Wine Works puts the winemaking process in the hands of its customers. With a wide variety of juices and concentrates to choose from, visitors can create their favourite types of vino, whether it's a Californian cabernet or a Seville orange sangria. Once the varietal has been chosen, Sheppard Wine Works’ staff takes care of the nitty-gritty, fermenting concoctions for up to six weeks before bottling and corking them. Clients may also customize the look of their resulting batch of bottles by choosing little details such as the foil colour and label image. For more experienced vintners, the shop also offers a selection of winemaking kits to use at home.
