- C$34 for a wine-crafting experience (C$90 value)
During an initial visit, experts explain the finer points of winemaking before assisting in the yeasting process and fermenting the chosen international wine for 6–10 weeks. Afterward, customers return to taste their batches for quality and bottle their custom brews. The experience includes labels, foils, corkage fees, and enough wine to fill 14 bottles (an 11.5L carboy), but customers must either bring their own bottles or purchase them on-site for $1.10 each. Each customer will also receive a complimentary wine bottle closure.
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 20 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 through the One Love program, which donates a percentage of proceeds to local charities and uses old bottles to house homeless toy boats.
