Lori Dahlberg – owner of VCW – started making wine in 1993 because of skyrocketing prices and has never looked back.
When Brew on Premise was finally approved in Alberta, Lori jumped on the chance to open her own store.
Now a Sommelier with a WSET Level 3 Certification (Wine and Spirits Estates Trust) – trained by Master of Wine: Philip Goodband (former Sommelier to the Queen Mother) – Lori knows how to make quality wine and is thrilled to bring her skills and knowledge to her store and the Home Wine Making Niche.
Whether you are a newbie or have a few batches under your belt, Lori can help with best practices and customizing your kit with fruit and additives. Let Lori help design the perfect wine for you.
High Quality Wine is our Focus! – which is why VCW uses the patented UWinemaker™ in its fermentation process. UWinemaker™ – a Calgary invention – provides a single fermentation vessel that keeps the oxygen out and makes superior, crystal clear wine with less hassle and faster turnaround.
UWinemaker™ is also available for sale at VCW for those who want to continue their wine making adventures at Home.

Whether you want to brew at home, ferment on premise, pick-up a gift, or need advice on your Wine Kits and customizations – Village Craft Winemaker is the perfect store for you!
We offer great selection and a convenient, inner-city location (1 block from Chinook Mall and approximately 20 Minutes from most areas of the city) – Customer Parking on 3rd Street in Front of the Store!
We look forward to seeing you!
