Awesome class! I have been making wine at home for a year now, but can't seem to get it to not have that "homemade watery" taste to it. After this class, I now have confidence that I will be great wine at home with the tips and tricks that I learnt at this class. I will also be starting to make beer at home at the same time as well. I will be back to buy my kits soon!

What You'll Get

If grapes could talk, they'd recount their dreams, the first time they got plucked, and the first time they felt victimized by nature's rumor mill—the vine. Taste the tales of the grape with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a wine-making and beer-making class at The Home Vintner, available at locations in Northwest Calgary, Northeast Calgary, and Airdrie (a $25 value).

The Home Vintner uncorks the secrets to making label-grade wine and beer at home in expert-led classes. Review each step of at-home wine making, including start-up, racking, hydrometer use, carbon-dioxide removal, and determining the difference between a quality cork and a wad of water-resistant tissues. Students mingle and test their honed palates on wine and cheese pairings. After class, pupils retain all the knowledge necessary to transform wine and beer kits into libations worthy of high-fives from Dionysus portraits.

About The Home Vintner

Founded in 1994 by former commercial airline pilot Paul Sass, The Home Vintner supplies connoisseurs and novices with an abundance of award-winning pours and do-it-yourself kits for individual winemaking and beer brewing. With Winexpert kits, at-home vino makers blend varietal juices from around the world that will be ready to drink or cellar in 4–8 weeks, depending on the kit. Alternatively, brewers dive into barley bubbles with Barons beer kits that contain measured ingredients to make a hoppy Canadian blond ale, an English-style redwood ale, and a crisp Dutch-style lager, among others.

During classes, the staff of certified wine- and beer-makers walks pupils through each step of the brewing and vintning process, such as carbon-dioxide removal, corking, storage, and determining each libation's year by monitoring its reaction to different songs. Courses dispense both basics of production and new methodologies, so apprentices can discover new approaches and skills to try with their next batches.
