Cru Select

Cru Select Made with European concentrates and pure varietal juice (no sugar is added). These 16L kits also come with specialty oak chips from the finest forests of France which impart a unique quality for each kit. Oak flavours such as Allier, Nevers, Troncais and Limousin add succulent overtones of toast and vanilla that are only associated with the very best wines.

All wine kit styles listed on this site are available to be made in the comfort and convenience of your own home. If you would like to make wine on our premises, additional charges apply as well as your prescence will be required during the mixing and the bottling process.

6 WEEK KITS
Can include 15-18L of a combination of grape juice concentrate and pure grape juice. These kits produce full-bodied wines with more bouquet and flavour with longer aging potential. Must be aged for a minimum of 6 to 12 months to truly be appreciated.

All products are In-Stock and ship within 1-2 business days unless stated otherwise.

For the protection of all of our customers, we cannot accept returns on any wine kits. We ask that you make an informed decision, read all descriptions and contact us should we need to provide more information on the particular product that interests you.
