Open by Appointment Only

Posted

We are currently closed to in store shopping and will not be making Wine on Site. We will continue to bring you the home winemaking and cheesemaking supplies you need. You can place orders through our online catalog, if you need assistance finding anything to order online please do not hesitate to contact us. Shipping or curbside pick up is available; if you prefer to pick up, please note we will schedule a date and time for you to pick up - please do not order online for in store pick up and assume you can go directly to the shop for pick up. The shop is not currently open and likely will not be most of the year except by appointment, but we want to work with you to help you get what you need.

We will keep basic supplies in stock, but will transition our wine kits to a request/preorder only system. We do have several kits currently in stock, please contact us for our current inventory list or to request kits to preorder.

Please note: We are NOT renting equipment in 2020.
