What's This?


“God made only water, but man made wine.”

– Victor Hugo, “Les Contemplations (1856)

And now you can make your own. Sure you can head to the wine shop and grab that $10 bottle of mass produced juice, but why not make a blend of your own. Recently, there has been a springing up of businesses that offer wine-making and bottling services to people like you and me. Let the oenophile in you come out. These places give you access to professional wine makers, teach the basics of wine making and allow you to crush your own grapes, age and bottle them. Besides, how cool would it be to give friends a bottle of your wine for the holidays?

There are plenty of places that offer such service:
