Common questions to an uncommon art form.
|“Do I need to be wine knowledgeable?”||“How much work do I need to do?”||“Can I make any style or type of wine?”|
|Absolutely not! A major goal of Vint Hill Craft Winery is to promote winemaking education through a hands-on, truly memorable and enjoyable experience.||Our winemaking team will work alongside customers to educate, coach and advise during every step of the process from initial fruit selection, sorting, de-stemming, pressing, fermenting, barrel choice, tasting, label design and bottling.||It is entirely up to you. It could be as simple as telling us some basic information about what you want, then picking up your wine when it’s ready or you could participate in every phase of the wine’s design through crafting and bottling.|
|“When do you start and how long does it take?”||“What do I do with my wine?”||“Is there a schedule?”|
|Winemaking starts at harvest time (September and October) but the process of design and style selection starts when you sign-up; June, July and August at the latest. When we bottle depends, of course, on your wine.||The wine is yours to do with as you choose, as you may with any wine you own. At our option, we also provide a way for the public to taste and purchase your wine through our on-site tasting room (a balcony overlooking the wine production area).||Of course! You will be able to see our schedule for your wine and its lab analyses in a master calendar and database report on our website. You’ll get to see what is happening in other barrels, too. Along the way, we’ll be making appointments for you to be at the winery with us and if you can’t, you can watch us via series of web cameras. Easy!|
|“Can a group participate?”|
|Certainly! A barrel produces approximately 300 bottles of wine so there is more than enough to share between a family, team, organization, community or business.
For safety reasons we need to limit the size of groups in the winery itself but outside of that, it’s up to you!
