SCHOOL OF WINE
Make and Barrel Your Own Wine
Teaching the fine art of private label winemaking. We provide everything you need from the equipment, bottles, labels and storage along with our years of experience to help craft your very own private label wine.
We've designed four classes to help you learn and master the art of making wine.
1. The Crush
Feed your grapes into our crushing and destemming machine. The must is pumped into fermenting vats, where it will rest until the primary fermentation completes.
2. The Press
After one week, fermentation has begun turning the sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide. During this session you will fill the partially fermented must to separate the juice from the skins. The yield is placed in an oak barrel to complete fermentation.
3. Rack it Up
After nearly 16 weeks, the sediment from has settled to the bottom of the barrel. During the racking process, you will carefully pump your wine from the barrel leaving behind any sediment, clean the barrel and pump your wine back into the barrel.
4. Filter, Fill & Cork
After nearly 10 months, your wine is ready to be removed from the barrel to be filtered and pumped into our bottling machine. You will will cork and label bottles of your own premium wine.
The same grapes used in world class wines from California, Chile and South Africa are available to you. These grapes are imported cold and produce award winning wines of exceptional flavor and quality.
*per barrel = 240 bottles
