Price Increase March 2023
We have received notice from RJ Spagnols, that they are increasing the cost of all Craft Winemaking kits as well as our freight costs, for an average of 7% as of March 1.
We understand that costs are going up everywhere and for this reason, our production fees will remain the same, to offset these costs to you.

We hope you have a fabulous February!

Here’s a Little Valentine’s Poem to get you in the mood:
Roses are Red

Poems are hard.

Love the Wine You’re With!
