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. The staff of certified winemakers walks pupils through each step of the wine-concocting process, such as carbon-dioxide removal, corking, storage, and determining each libation's year by monitoring its reaction to different Bon Jovi songs. Courses dispense both basics of wine production and new methodologies, so apprentices of all experience levels can discover new approaches and skills to try with their next batches. Instructors also escort students through the steps of brewing their own beer with the help of an award-winning Barons premium beer kit. Grads of this course also obtain a 15 per cent discount toward a take-home wine or beer kit and a cache of dreams about shaking hands with clydesdales and St. Pauli girls.

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.

First time and it was great. Would like to see fewer attendees as was a bit cramped.
