The Winemaker's Experience

At Water 2 Wine, we let you become the winemaker! Sample wines from our menu, pick your favorite and become involved in the wine-making process.

You get to mix the grape must and pitch the yeast to get the fermentation process started. Our wine-making team will then take over for the remainder of the production of your batch.

During this time, we can help you design custom labels for your 28-29 bottles in your custom batch of wine.

In 6-8 weeks, you set up an appointment to come back and bottle your wine. Feel free to share the fun and invite family or friends to your “Bottling Party” to help you fill, cork and label your wine.
