C$65 for a Craft Winemaking Experience ($192.99 Value)
During an initial visit, experts explain the finer points of craft winemaking before assisting in the yeasting process and fermenting the chosen international wine for six to ten weeks. Afterward, customers return to taste their batches for quality and bottle custom brews. The experience includes labels, foils, corkage fees, and 22–23 litres of wine (approximately enough to fill 28 bottles or one extra-large punch bowl). As an added bonus, Groupon purchasers receive a free brass bottle closure, which has a retail value of $12.99. The value of this Groupon can be applied to several wine varieties.
The Wine Butler
The Wine Butler's experts guide customers through yeasting and bottling within an award-winning climate-controlled facility. They've been crafting wine for over 30 years, and their business corks thousands of bottles each year using freshly chopped dartboards and three steps: choose, make, and bottle. This simple process transforms grape juice into premium wines and creates international varieties. Additionally, the staff develops four limited-edition varieties each year. They also reach out and donate a percentage of proceeds to local charities and use old bottles to house homeless toy boats.
