Getting Started

It’s easy to make your own wine. Let’s get started!


Okay, the fact that you’re here means the idea of making your own wine has crossed your mind. We are ready to help make your experience the best it can be.

Winemaking is so much more than just the process of converting grape juice into a delightful wine. It’s about personalizing your experience by learning about wines and selecting from the many unique wine varieties and styles. More importantly, it’s about the pride and pleasure you feel when you taste the first sip of a wine you have crafted yourself.

Why make wine?

The Value

You can craft winery-quality wine for a fraction of what you would spend on similar store-bought wine.

It’s Fun!

Socialize with other winemakers while you bottle your wine at our on-premise locations or craft your wine at home with a group of friends. You’ll meet new people, share your passion and quickly realize why this has been a popular pastime for decades.

The Convenience

Have a cellar full of wine for every occasion and food pairing right at your fingertips. No more last minute trips to the store!

Okay, so now you know why you should make wine, but how do you do it?

At Brewing Oasis

If you are making it at a retailer, you’ll first select your wine – our retailers can recommend a great style based on what you already like to drink. The retailer will prepare your juice and you’ll sprinkle the yeast. Over the next several weeks your retailer will carefully follow all of the necessary steps to create delicious wine. When your wine is complete, you’ll return to bottle it. You can either bring your own bottles that are clean, or purchase new bottles at the store. After bottling you can apply your choice of bottle label (offered at the store, or from many online label retailers) and top it off with a coordinating shrink.

At Home

Alternatively, If you make your wine at home you'll find that it's easy and rewarding. You’ll need a bit of equipment, which is inexpensive and pays for itself after your first couple of batches. Many of our retailers offer starter kits with everything you need all in one box. All of our kits come with step by step instructions and take only about 4 hours total over the course of a few weeks. The process can vary slightly from wine to wine, but generally there are 4 basic steps: Primary Fermentation, Secondary Fermentation, Stabilizing and Clearing and Bottling.
