We have been in the winemaking business at our current location since October of 1998, first as a franchise, and now as an independent operation for the last two years. Tom, Jaimie, Ed and Greg, the staff at Lakeshore Artisan Wines, have a combined 30 years in the winemaking field.
We are here to help you make great wine with top quality grape juices and concentrates from California, Chile, Australia, Italy and other top wine producing regions around the globe. We feature wine kits from Cellar Craft and R J Spagnols, but we can also special order from Vineco, Mosti Mondiale, Advintage and other kit manufacturers.
While some of our customers make their wine at home using kits and equipment purchased from us, most make their wine at our store, using our state of the art equipment and facilities. Making your wine at our store is easy and fun, and costs a fraction of the price of comparable commercial wine. To make your wine on premises you have to add the yeast and perhaps a couple of other ingredients to get your wine started, and bottle your wine with our fully automated equipment when it's finished. We do all the rest. If you're not sure what kind of wine to make, we can ask questions about your wine preferences and make suggestions to steer you in the right direction.
Your satisfaction is GUARANTEED. If you make wine with us and are not completely satisfied, we will replace it with another wine of equal value, or refund your money.
