Make your own wine Toronto

You can make your own wine and beer in Toronto

The places to make your own wine or beer in Toronto are where grownups go for fun, because adult-ing doesn't get much better than customizing your own alcohol. Not only that, prices are ridiculously cheap – always a good thing when it comes to boozy beverages.

Here's a roundup of places to make your own wine and beer in Toronto.

Beer
Toronto Brewing

This home brewing supply store by Sheppard and Allen Road runs classes for beginner and intermediate beer makers. Their sessions will teach you how to make your own beer from scratch with raw ingredients: after three to four hours, you'll have your own batch of brewski to take home.

Wine

Wine Butler

There's over 40 types of wine to choose from at this award-winning craft wine store by Dufferin and the 401. Save tons of money and come out with a wine that supposedly has one-seventh the preservatives of commercial wine. 

Macedo U-Vin

You can make wine with the team behind the Ossington favourite Macedo Wine Grape Juice Ltd. or at their locations on Caledonia and Dufferin too. These longtime wine pros will have your wines ready to bottle between five to seven weeks.

Bloor West Winery

This Etobicoke winery makes 23 litres at a time and boast a wine filtering process that uses industrial 10-pad filters; they also offer reds, whites plus rosés. 

Sheppard Wine Works

Located by Bayview and Sheppard, this on-premise wine maker accepts walk-ins, and will have your chosen wine ready to be bottled after either four, six, or eight weeks.

Beer and Wine 

Fermentations!

Also offering cider and mead, this bottling service on the Danforth will help you customize your beer if you have a particular taste you're looking for, and wine is made from their award-winning Grapemasters grapes.

Brew Kettle

This Richmond Hill spot offers the option to fill your batch of wine into 5-litre bags or boxes instead of bottles, though they have those too. Beers are put into cans, and you can also turn your wine into the sparkling kind by carbonating your batch for an extra $12. 

DIY Wine Cider Beer

Boasting one-sixth the preservatives as commercial batches, this service at Lawrence and Port Union provides 30 bottles of wine per order or 68 bottles of beer. They're always running sales and promotions, meaning you'll be able to get libations for even cheaper than they are.
