Customers choose from a wide variety of hot sauces such as Gecko Gary's Roasted Red Pepper and Blair's Chipotle Death Rain, a combination of ancho and habanero peppers. Customers choose three bottles of craft beer from options such as red ale, pilsner, and light lime ale. They also select the type of varietals to be used for wine before adding yeast to induce fermentation. Six to eight weeks later, they return to separate the wine into 24 bottles to take home.
The Wine Garden
Wineries are often found far down country roads, shrouded by the curling tendrils of their vineyards. At The Wine Garden, though, the entire winemaking experience can be had without setting foot outside of the city.
Yeast bubbles busily in stainless-steel fermentation vessels, transforming the juices of grapes from fertile regions of Chile, Argentina, and California. The fermentation process yields wines that range from crisp chardonnay to heady cabernet franc, the progenitor of cabernet sauvignon, and oak barrels bestow some of the elixirs with a rich maze of tannins. Fruit wines made with peaches, cranberries, or strawberries make refreshing summertime drinks and help work friends mingle with hummingbird friends at parties. Patrons play a major role in the entire process, selecting grapes and siphoning finished wine into bottles.
