Welcome to the Wine Cottage

We at The Wine Cottage are here to help you enjoy a fun experience making your own wine and other adult beverages. We will help you select the style of wine and other beverages you enjoy, then leave the rest to us till bottling time. We'll schedule you an appointment and then help you through the whole process of bottling. While bottling you can sample a small amount of your wine while snacking on cheese and crackers. This whole process only takes about half an hour depending on how much you wish to socialize. It is a wonderful time to catch up with friends & family.

We have  been helping many wine and beer lovers for over  20 years and would like to take this time to Thank You  all, for without you there would not be a Wine Cottage, so come on in and join the hundreds who continue to enjoy both the experience and there great  beverages.

We offer the highest quality wine kits and specialty wines (Port, Ice Wine, Cabernet Franc Ice Wine Style,  Sparkling Wine , Island Mist fruit flavoured wines and beer kits from Winexpert. Or bring us your own fresh or frozen fruit and grapes and we will make you 23 litres of delicious wine or cider which  can be sweetened to your preference. Quantities of fruit required vary somewhat depending on the type so please call for guidelines as to the correct quantity you will need.


All our wine kits are 100% guaranteed

We  also offer Barons  beer kits for the home brewer  who wants more of  a craft beer making experience. Or make it on the premises.  Also  in store we have a wide variety of  wine based fruit flavoured coolers.
