Making Wine


Wine Making Richmond Hill Brew KettleMaking your own wine is easy at the Brew Kettle’s automated wine workshop. With our complete selection of popular wine styles, knowledgeable and experienced staff, and fully equipped facility, you are just weeks away from enjoying your first glass.

If you are new to winemaking, a good place to start is our Guide To Winemaking.


Your first step in the wine making process is to choose which wine to make, and we will be pleased to advise you. Starting your batch takes just 5 minutes, as you prepare the juice and start the fermentation. Over the next 4 to 8 weeks we carefully monitor your wine, and we stabilize and filter it just before you return for bottling.

On your second visit you will find that our bottle washing machine, automatic bottle fillers, and power corkers make the job quick and professional. It’s almost too easy, some customers tell us! With labels and shrink caps, your bottles will look as impressive as the contents will taste. Cheers!

The Basics: Kits & Prices

Wine kits contain concentrated grape juice, or pure grape juice, or a blend of the two. Generally, wine making kits based on concentrated juice make a lighter flavoured, softer wine that can be consumed soon after bottling. Plan to consume these wines within 18 months.

Kits with a high proportion of pure juice will take longer to make, will benefit from some bottle aging, and will make a wine that is richer and more flavourful. These wines will last 2 or 3 years, depending on the specific kit and wine storage.

All of our wine making kits, except as noted, make 23 litres of finished wine, or about 30 (750 ml) bottles. There are many varieties to choose from and the prices range from $122 for our 4 week wine kits, $156 to $190 for our 6 week wine kits, and $189 to $207 for our 8 week red wine kits.

Prices quoted for on premise winemaking include the kit, the service that we provide, your use of the bottling facility, standard corks, shrink caps, and all taxes. The only extra charges are for custom labels, bottles, and premium corks.
