Ferment on Premise (also known as: UVin, UBrew, Brew on Premise, On-Site Winemaking, On-Site Winery and Urban Winery in other provinces) was legalized in Alberta on October 2018 and is now available to the Home Wine Making Market. Village Craft Winemaker is proud to offer customers the option to take their Craft Wine Kits home or to Ferment in our store. Simply sprinkle the yeast and come back in 30- 45 days to bottle your wine – VCW looks after the rest! We are proud to use the “UWinemaker™” – an Innovative Calgary Invention – in our fermentation process for better quality wine in less time without the hastle. We also offer a full array of Wine Making Supplies, RJ Spagnols Wine Kits, Vineco Wine Kits, Micro-Brew Premium Beer Kits and a convenient inner-city location to the local Calgary Market.

Village Craft Winemaker

Our love of Wine Making drives who we are & what we do.

Village Craft Winemaker is your inner-city Wine Making Store.

Be the Winemaker without Owning the Winery!

Ferment on Premise, new in the province of Alberta, means that you will not have to clutter up your home, lift heavy carboys, or donate a lot of time to get good wine.

We take the effort out and do the work for you. Simply come into the store and discuss what type of wine you will put in; red, white, rose, lighter or full bodied and our sommelier will assist you with the Wine kits that match your preferences. Sprinkle the yeast and come back in 30 to 45 days (depending on the kit) to bottle your wine. It’s that Easy!

What started out as a hobby for the owner has lead to her achieving a WSET Level 3 Award and is now using this to help Calgarians get back into winemaking. It is her passion and she is delighted to share her knowledge with you.

VCW is proud to offer Calgarians a great selection of RJ Spagnols Wine Kits (the Top producer of winemaking kits in Canada), VineCo Winekits – and to give customers the option to Brew on Premise or to restart their winemaking at their home.

Village Craft Winemaker looks forward to many years of happy customers. Our love of Wine Making drives who we are and what we do.

The Future Of

Wine Making

UWinemaker™ - Available In Store!

Village Craft Winemaker is proud to be the only Brew on Premise in Canada to use the innovative Calgary Invention, the UWinemaker™, in our fermentation process. Uwinemaker™ boasts a unique Rock ‘n’ Roll method that eliminates the heavy lifting, siphoning, filtering, and mess of traditional pail and carboy methods.

It produces Better Quality wine with the freshness of the bouquet and flavour right off in the glass. The wine is crystal clear without the oxidation of filtering. Make it at home or in the store in less time without the hassle – most batches can be bottled in 30 days, and if you ferment on premise – you simply toss the yeast and come back for bottling – we look after the rest.

The UWinemaker system provides a completely different and better taste than the days of glass carboys and plastic buckets. The process of making the wine is far easier and the quality is much better. Lori provides an excellent establishment and her knowledge will ensure you get the best quality of wine.

Lori is a wealthe of knowledge. Great customer service and friendly knowledgeable staff. Perfect place to go if you're interested in wine making. You go in and pick your wine kit from a wide variety of options. The kit is prepared and stored in the store until it is ready. All the equipment and accessories you need to bottle your wine is there for your use once your wine is ready. Or you can pick up a wine kit and everything you need to make wine at home. My husband and I always enjoy our wine bottling dates at Village Craft Wine. Highly recommend.
