Seasonal Dessert Wine Kits

For the past few years our seasonal ‘flavoured’ ports such as Chocolate Raspberry etc. have been very popular. Now they return and are renamed ‘Dessert’ wines in keeping with the industry’s policy of not naming wines as per traditional locations. Therefore our port kits are now called dessert wine kits. They remain the same as far as top quality ingredients and great finish.

Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Wine: This wine brings together notes of rounded cherry, plum, and bright raspberry with rich chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Excellent on its own or with any dessert, or serve with toasted nuts or shortbread.

Blackberry Dessert Wine: Bright blackberry notes, lingering tannins and a gorgeous deep hue. An excellent match for intense cheeses, roasted nutsand especially chocolate desserts.

Coffee Dessert Wine: Energize your senses with this comforting flavour experience! Dating back to the 15th century, coffee has been enjoyed worldwide as an invigorating elixir. Typical of medium roast coffee, aromas of toffee, burnt marshmallow and chocolate will entice you and follow through to a palate which finishes with lingering notes of vanilla.

Orange Chocolate Dessert Wine: This rich specialty wine is an intricate mélange of lively flavours that tempt the nose and reward the palate. Rich aromas of dark chocolate are set gracefully against a frame of refreshing citrus and vanilla notes. The palate is endowed with a full-bodied and balanced combination of delicious chocolate, hints of orange peel and a medium-sweet finish.

These Seasonal Special dessert wine kits are in stock now for $105 each. We have a limited number in stock – so we are not taking orders – they are only available on a first come basis.

Whole Juice Pails.

Many years ago the best wine making resources were the annual juices. That was at a time when the kits were mostly concentrates and limited in variety. Now we stock Premium kits that are made from top quality ingredients and range composition including grape skins. Our award winning wine kits are available all year round so the demand for juices in fall has changed.

Every year The Vineyard has continued to supply juice pails in the fall and this year we are again offering top quaility products. We are expecting a limited number of Australian Chardonnay, Australian Shiraz, California Sauvignon Blanc, French Cabernet Sauvignon, French Merlot and from Italy Pinot Grigio.

Our pails come in 23 litre ‘kit’ format which means yeast and additives are included. Prices range from $108 to $125 each. We are not taking orders and they are available on a first come basis. So hurry in today while we have a good supply and variety.

Festa Brew back at The Vineyard

We are very pleased to have Festa Brew beer kits back in stock. These are arguably one of if not the best beer kits on the market. They are a full 23 litres of wort ready for you to ferment out. We now have limited supply and variety so do not hesitate to pick one up today.
