George Orwell famously wrote about winemaking, "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a grape's face—forever." Have fun proving him right with today’s grape-smashing Groupon: for $63, you get one winemaking experience and 30 bottles of the wine of your creation at Wine Kitz Iris, located on Iris Street (up to a $126 value). This Groupon includes the $49 winery fee and can be used for any of the light-bodied wines; you can also use the Groupon's value toward more expensive wines. This deal does not include bottles, which can either be brought from home or purchased from the winery for $.99 each, plus tax.

Wine Kitz Iris guides oenophiles through the ins and outs of custom winemaking. Owner Linda LeGroulx calls on her Algonquin College sommelier degree to suggest the ideal wine, taking into account each client's tastes and spillage tendencies. The helpful staff walks customers through the easy and relatively quick process of mixing and adding flavouring and yeast to their infant wine, knowing, like a good parent or tug-of-war contender, when to back off and let clients do their thing. After about four weeks of in-facility maturation, 30 bottles of fermented fruit emerge ready for you to bottle, cork, and label with the aid of Wine Kitz's intuitive, user-friendly machinery.

The wide variety of wine on display, vino-inspired artwork, and a large talking grape inspire amateur wine connoisseurs to creatively concoct their very own blends. The friendly and knowledgeable staff members are there to help every step of the way.

This deal is valid for new customers only.

Customer Reviews

The woman who serviced me was very pleasant and friendly. She spoke of the various wines and provided a pamphlet (for informational purposes). I will be picking up my wine batch in January 2012. I hope it turns out well...
