How does the 4 Step winemaking process work?
We will invite you back to the winery after approximately 5 months to taste your wine directly from the barrel. It’s a simple visit without any mechanical equipment or physical labor required from you.
Then just 5 or 6 more months of aging in barrel and we’ll be ready for you to come bottle your wine and take it home. You will have the opportunity to make your own personalized labels for your allocation of bottles and you will take those home with your wine to apply to the bottles at your own pace.
Take home and enjoy for years to come.
What about the Labels?
One of the best parts of making wine is deciding how to name your tasty vintage. wineUdesign offers many labels for you to provide your own name and words to personalize the label. These are available to all our winemakers at no additional cost.
For an extra cost, you can fully customize and design your own labels at this link below.
That’s a third-party business and we trust them to do business directly with you.
How much wine does a barrel make?
How many people should I make wine with?
Our Private Barrel groups are limited to 10 people per barrel. We think the ideal group size is 4 or 5 people or couples. For the amount of effort to organize this experience and the amount of time your wine will age, we expect you will want at least 4 cases of your wine to enjoy.
What is the cost to make my own wine?
Where do these grapes come from? Why?
When can I start making my wine?
Can I sell this wine?
Can I just buy wine and not do any winemaking…And save myself a year?
Do you ship wine? And can I personalize those labels?
And yes, our labels allow for a considerable amount of white space for you to include a personal message to someone. Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday and Thanks for your Business are some of the most popular messages placed on bottles. Feel free to get creative, there is more space than that.
So Interesting, what else do you guys do?
We sell grapes and juice to at home winemakers.
We offer public Wine Blending Classes surrounded by barrels inside the winery.
Private Classes and Private Networking events with Wine and Cheese are also available.
We’ve partnered with great people like Patrizia’s and Aigner Chocolates to offer great pairings to our wine…Come get some.

How long can I expect to be at wineUdesign?
Winemaking Experiences: Crushing, Pressing and Bottling each take about an Hour, maybe an Hour and Fifteen depending on group size. The Mid-Season Tasting is a short 20 minute tasting from your barrel(s).
Can I bring my kids?
Winemaking Experiences: All ages are acceptable for winemaking experiences, but please discuss first with our team and make sure you know the equipment that is used in the winemaking process.
What should I wear?
We will be working and pouring multiple wines at multiple times. Mistakes do happen and wine is not easy to get out of most fabrics. I’m sure you can look great without wearing your Sunday Best.
