Wine Kits

At the Wine Cellar in Kitchener we have over 100 different wines to choose from.  Wine from all over the world, and from different vineyards and companies.  With so much selection there is a wine for every occasion and preference.  "When deciding on your wine remember the most important thing is not how much it costs, or how popular it is, but how much you enjoy it."

Wine Cellar Levels

The Wine Cellar carries 7 styles of Vineco wine kits.  Each has its own style and quality.

Instead of trying to figure which wine kit is better or cheaper than the other we have numbered them as Level 1 to Level 6.  Specialty wine kits, coolers and fruit wines are not included

 

Level            is your least expensive, “house wine” quality.  Level             is your most expensive, “high end premium” quality.

What separates each of these wine kits are 3 things.

1: How much juice?     2: How much water?     3: Whether you juice is “generic” or “country specific”.

Please click on any one of these Kits for more information on our different wines and their character.

18L Wine Kit

CellarCraft uses over 12 pounds of virgin, varietal grapes to produce “Crushed Grape Packs” for true, on-the-skins fermentation in its Showcase reds.  All of the natural skins and solids from variety-specific grapes are captured for extra extraction of aromatics, flavor, tannin, color and body during the fermentation stage.  The finished wine shows character never before possible from a kit. Truly a quality breakthrough! Available in 14 varieties.  Each kit is in the 18L format.

2 | 5 | 0

Amarone Style

The wine is full-bodied, deep garnet color and richly dry. Notes of plum, sour cherry, raspberry and vanilla gradually marry with anise, bitter chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather and fig tones that develop with age. Long, lingering finish.

4 & 5 | 5 | 0

Cabernet Sauvignon

Sonoma Valley California

Dark and rich, with soft, plush tannins and layers of bright berry fruit and spice. Deep blackberry character with raspberry, cherry, cassis, and vanilla. Subtle  traces of savoury spice.

3 & 5 | 4 | 0

Cabernet Merlot

Walla Walla Washington

The Walla Walla appellation is very special. Its outstanding reds were what first put Washington on the world wine map. Our offering is the classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet and Merlot but typifies the unique Walla Walla profile of intense fruit and spice flavors and aromatics. Notes of currant, cherry and plum are backed by hints of black pepper, anise and coffee. Oaking nicely mellows the tannins and adds a suggestion of toastiness.

2 | 3-4 | 0

Merlot

Yakima Valley Washington

Bold, yet elegant. This Yakima Valley Merlot is big and full with up-front waves of raspberry, blackberry and plum. Subtle notes of cedar and mocha follow the fruit. Dark, rich and intense.

5 & 7 | 4 | 0

Carménère Chile

Oak produces soft tannins, subtle toast, and vanilla, providing a terrific backdrop to the aromas and flavours of blackberry, black cherry, tropical fruit, and spice from the grapes. Notes of coffee, mocha, and tobacco can be expected along with a mineral tang that forms as part of the lengthy finish. The wine is medium to full-bodied with bright ruby colour.

4 & 5 | 4 | 0

Malbec Argentina

The definitive star of Argentina. Our Malbec is distinguished by its dark, dense structure, full, rounded mouth-feel, prominent, lush flavours of ripe cherry, black currant and black berry, subtle notes of clove, vanilla and caramel with background suggestions of earthiness. The bright, vibrant edge is beautifully counter-balanced by oak.

0 | 3 | 0

Mystic, California

2 & 3 | 5 | 0

Rosso Fortissimo

A big, full-bodied wine with solid structure and bold fruit notes. Complex cassis, plum and cherry notes balance the bold tannins. Oak contributes toasty vanilla and greater depth in this intense wine.

3 & 5 | 5 | 0

Shiraz Australia

The wine shows a deep, crimson color with purple undertones. The up-front aromatics reflect the typical dark fruit notes of blackberry, cherry, and plum, complimented by restrained black pepper which should become more pronounced with age. In the background are subtle layers of toast and vanilla from the oak. The aromas continue to the palate creating a soft, rounded expression of the fruits, spice, and oak. Tannins are in gentle harmony with the overall impression and create a well defined, yet delicate frame for the wine. This Shiraz should be a very good match for a wide range of foods - steak, braised lamb shanks, pizza, chili con carne, pasta with tomato-based sauces.

1 & 2 | 4-5 | 0

Zinfandel Lodi California

It starts with an up-front core of blackberry and dark cherry aromas, followed by suggestions of blueberry, raspberry, cranberry and dried plum. Undertones are of chocolate, almond and exotic spice. Ends with an unmistakable black pepper sensation.

8 -10 Week

18L Wine Kit

Exceptional grapes are used for our Showcase Collection.  Most are harvested from specific blocks of named vineyards. All are given exceptional care during processing to ensure that all of the desirable character is retained and that no undesirable qualities are introduced.  Care starts in the vineyards where we stipulate that yields must be controlled to less than 3 tons per acre. Intensity of flavors is preserved.  The grapes are crushed and pressed in small batches using gentle bladder presses. No bitterness is introduced through overly aggressive juice extraction.  The juices are settled only by gravity. No fining agents, filters or centrifuges are used. This leaves all of the desirable solids in the juices so that they can impart their flavors and esters into the wine during fermentation.  The juices typically go from the vine to our freezers, at -18 degrees, in less than 24 hours.

No sugars have been added to the must.

 

No non-grape flavors, esters or botanicals have been added to the kit.

 

We hope that you will agree that this attention to quality produces wines like you have never before experienced from a kit or bought juices.

 

Note: Minimum processing creates superior flavors and aromatics but you may occasionally encounter “wine diamonds” in the bottle or glass, especially if the wine was over-chilled or stored several days in the refrigerator. These are natural, tasteless, harmless and inert. Simply pour the wine, gently trying to leave the crystals in the bottle.
