Oak Barrel Aging Offers

“Three months in the barrel is like a year in the bottle”

We had a cancellation in January’s barrel, so 1 opening has come available for oak barrel aging of:
Cru Select Australian Cabernet Shiraz Merlot

$189 (includes wine kit, vintner’s fee, 3 months of oak barrel aging)


February’s Barrel is almost full – only one space left:
Grand Cru International Chilean Malbec

$159 (includes wine kit, vintner’s fee, 3 months of oak barrel aging)


We are now taking orders for March’s Barrel aging.
CC Winery Series Rosso Grande Excellente

$209 (includes wine kit, vintner’s fee, 3 months of oak barrel aging)


Our first barrel, started in November, was a HUGE success – the quality of wine, even on bottling day, far exceeded even our loftiest expectations.  Everyone that participated in the first barrel has already either signed up for the next barrel or has expressed interest, so we expect that in the coming months barrel aging is going to become a hot commodity – sign up early to avoid disappointment!  Only 4 batches per month can be accommodated in our three ‘medium toast Genuine French Oak barrels’.

If you have any suggestions for April’s barrel aging, please let us know!

New Website!

We thought it was time to update the look of our website, so please take a browse through and let us know what you think!

February Restricted Quantity Wine Kit now available!

The next of the highly sought-after Restricted Quantity wine kits are here!

Argentina Torrontés

The signature fragrant white grape of Argentina, Torrontés (related to Muscat)is one of the “aromatic varietals” distinctive and exclusive to this South American region. It produces a wine with a bouquet rich with tropical fruits, honey and sweet floral notes. The flavour is unexpected – crisp and refreshing with a vibrant acidity, citrus notes and a hint of spice with an enduring finish.

Oak 0 Body 3 Sweetness 0

If you did not pre-order this kit, but in hindsight you wish you had, let us know, and we will put you on a list – just incase there are any kits left after all pre-orders have been purchased.
