Let's Make Wine

Like wine? Don't know what kind to buy? Don't like the price?

Let's get together to make a few batches at a wine-making store.

Why? Provides an opportunity to learn about different kinds of wine and drastically reduces cost. Why in a group? A "batch" of wine at a wine-making store is usually 30 bottles of one kind. In a group, we can share batches, each person getting just a few of each kind they like. Plus we have arranged a private event: learn and have fun.

The first meeting has a capacity of just 12 people, but we will arrange more events at larger venues if there is enough interest. Please note: since the initial capacity is so small, please be absolutely sure you will attend before you RSVP.

There is a $10 prepay cost that may be applicable towards any purchase at Winexpert. You can either prepay at one of our meetups or send and Interac bank transfer to [masked].

Question: What will we be makng? Answer: Wine.

The first 12 to prepay $10 will be part of this event. The $10 will be returned to you at the event. *

**PLEASE NOTE***All may RSVP for this event. Only those that prepay first will be the ones to go as it's on a first come first served basis. 

Those that have not prepaid may be moved to the waiting list until their $10 is received.

Event: Part 1: Gather at 7pm. Meet, learn, socialize and select wines to make.
Part 2: Gather to assist in bottling, labeling and taking your treasure home.

Looking forward to seeing you there!!

      Hi Karen, I was told that it all should be ready by June 21st. I'll be in touch with Winexpert this week to confirm and to see how we will all get the product.

    It was a great event. Like everyone else I extend my thank you to Alex and Don. And Don, and
    extra big thank you for taking the time and initiative to organize the orders so we could share cases. A big job but one which you managed with calm and skill! Thank you. And for anyone that was unable to attend and are still interested if I were you I would let Alex and Don know. Winexpert truly put on a great show. And Karen, we'll talk.

    Still high on all that good wine ;-) Definitely going there again. Or better yet, let's make it a bi-monthly meetup! I had a great time.

    Okay, we're full now. So please don't send any money if you are on the waiting list. If that situation changes I will let everyone know. Thanks for everyone's interest!! If this event is popular enough I'm sure that we'll be able to do it again.

    Can I pay you for me +1 at Casablanca night? I heard there is some sort of virus circulating around online banking, not sure of the details, but just to be safe, would rather pay in person.

  • Alex S.

    As of Thursday, the 10th, at 10:00 AM we still have 3 spots available. For those on the waiting list it's just a matter of sending $10 through Interac or giving it to me at one of our meetups. Directions above. Thanks, Alex

    I buy my concentrate from this place and make it at home…so far they are very good. This would be a great opportunity to try various types …the price for a group will be the deciding factor...

    What is the fee for the actual making of the wine?

    April 9, 2014

    • Alex S.

      That will be determined at a later date if there's enough interest within the group.
