Wine on Premise is Coming!

June 4, 2015

CraigIf you’ve been to our Southdale Square or McPhillips St Wine Sense locations you’ve noticed some pretty major changes. The store fronts are now a bit smaller as we’ve expanded our back rooms to make space for the Wineries we are putting in for Wine on Premise!

Also known as U-Vint, U-Brew and ‘On-Site’ Winemaking, Wine-on-Premise has been allowed in all provinces (except Manitoba and and Alberta) for as long as 20 years. Now Manitoban’s get to join in the fun!

What is Wine-On-Premise? Simply put we do the most of the work for you in our stores…

-You choose and pay for your wine.

-We quickly prep it for you in our In-Store Winery facility.

-You pitch (add) the yeast.

-We ferment, degas, stabilize and filter your wine in our In-Store Winery.

– You come back when the wine is ready and bottle your wine using our Winery Bottle Washers, Bottle Fillers and Corkers.

You don’t have to worry about the heavy lifting or any of the clean-up!

Southdale is well along with the Winery Room basically finished- the commercial sink is in place, the 3 cartridge water filter and the mixing valve are installed at the Start Station for quality control and finished product consistency.

The big change is on the sales floor- you’ll now notice the bottling stations where you’ll see the two bottle electric filler, pneumatic corkers and heat shrink machine- all winery grade equipment- that you’ll get to use if you have us make your wine for you!

As we wait for authorization from the LGA to start offering the Wine on Premise service you’ll see our other stores get the same makeovers!

Think of us as your ‘Personal Winery’!
