Making your own wine involves a little more
than just crushing grapes. While you may have
the desire to produce your own quality wine,
your busy lifestyle may not allow for it.
That is where we come in.
On your first visit, our winemakers work
closely with you to discover your unique tastes
and preferences to match with our worldwide
selection of our grapes and juices.
FROM GRAPE TO GLASS. OUR EXPERTISE YOUR WINE.
We take pride in the age-old “vin de garage”
tradition, producing small batch wines in stainless
steel tanks and oak barrels. The infinite options presented
throughout the winemaking process are yours to
choose, allowing for an endless variety of unique
flavours, aromas and style of your wine.
A consultation with our winemaker will get you started. Grape selection, blending potential, and oak aging options are just a few of the considerations we’ll cover as part of our winemaking process. From grape selection through to bottling, you can engage as much or as little as you desire in the process of winemaking. We present you with every opportunity to be involved in the crushing, fermentation and blending.
Start the process with a consultation with our winemakers where you choose the grapes for your wine according to your tastes and desires. We offer a wide range of grapes and juices from wine regions around the world, both old and new.
To extract the essence of the grape – you can participate or you can leave it to us.
The grapes or juice begin to ferment in temperature-controlled Italian stainless steel fermenting tanks. For red wines, the, maceration comes into action – which is the time the grapes are left in contact with their skins. This widely determines the character of the wine. Maceration is a technique employed during fermentation to extract colour, tannins, vitamins, and anti-oxidants from the grape skins.
Transferring the wine from tank to tank, a process known as racking, leaving unwanted sediments behind in order to start clarifying the wine.
For those wines benefitting from oak aging Vin de Garage offers a choice of French, American or Hungarian oak barrels. Our winemakers will suggest specific barrels and aging times considering the varietal, the vintage, and your tastes.
STABILIZATION & FILTERING
Our artisanal concept brings us to employ minimum treatments for our wines. We prefer to use stabilization through physical means – racking and filtration – as opposed to resorting to chemical processes which many commercial wineries use.
As the wine takes on its more familiar form, you can call it your own. We offer a choice of bottle styles, corks and capsules and labels.
