Prices do not include bottles, corks or labels (some labels are included with the kits).  We feel why pay for items that you do not use. If you bottle in large bottles why should you pay the same price for corks if you bottle in smaller bottles?

Corkers
Carboys
Demijohns

The Process

How long does it take and what do I do?
Your initial visit takes 10 to 15 minutes and entails you mixing up the ingredients in a bucket and then sprinkling the yeast on top. The product is then left at our facility for four to six weeks. You would then return to the facility and bottle your product, which usually takes 1/2 to 1 hour.

Here are some pictures of the process:
 
Pick out your wine Kit
Mix up your Kit
Pay for your product
In 4 or 6 weeks come back and bottle your product
Cork and or shrink seal your product
When you are all done load up and
take your product home to enjoy.

What does it cost and how much do I get?
Due to our large extent of products we are able to offer you the best products and prices in Brant County. Our pricing structure is as follows:

Wine kit + Service fee ($65.00 + GST) = selling price

If you buy the wine kit off of us we offer a 15% discount off the price of the kit and service fee. You can bring in your own wine kit (subject to approval) and use our facility to brew it up and just pay the service fee if you desire. Our pricing can range from an approximate low of $93.00 all the way up to $160.00 depending on the kit you chose. You will get approximately 20 to 21 litres per batch (28-30 750 ml bottles).
 
Are there any other costs involved?
At BYO we believe that you should only pay for what you use and as such we do not include any other costs in our prices (i.e. corks, labels etc.) this way we can keep our prices more reasonable.

How long will before I can drink it and how long will it last?
After you get your wine home you should leave the bottles upright for 1 to 2 days in order to shape the cork. The bottles should then be placed on their sides to seal the corks. Some of the wines can be enjoyed immediately while others do need some aging. In all cases we recommend at least two to three months after bottling before you should consume it. The wine you produce should give you from two to four years (longer with premium kits) of enjoyment.


Vineco International Products supply all our wine kits, which are the larger suppliers to the industry.
