Kit Changes Are Here
Last month we announced some big changes were coming to our RJS Craft Winemaking Kits starting March 2021. RJS has re-branded and re-organized their varietals and collections.
We are excited to see many new wines in the line-up. With the changes, that means some discontinuations, some country of origin changes and yes, price changes as well.
Our website has been updated to reflect the changes. As the RJS changes come, there will be some shortages of certain varietals, until the end of March. We have a list of everything and we are happy to help you select your next wines with recommendations for new wines, if one of your favourites is being delayed or discontinued.
The Grand Cru (4 week) Line has now been discontinued… but don’t despair! Most of your favourites from this line have moved into the Cru International Line.
