LENNY'S

HOW IT WORKS

With a seemingly never ending list of wines to choose from, you're sure to find the one that you'll love. Each batch makes 28-30 bottles, and the price you see includes the kit, service fee, and applicable taxes.

The Wine Making Process​

  •  Visit your local Lenny's Wine Cellar.

  •  We'll help you choose the wine kit (or kits) that's right for you.

  •  Start your wine by sprinkling the yeast into the juice to start the fermentation.

  • Our skilled staff members will handle the rest of the winemaking process.

  • About 4 to 6 weeks later, depending on the quality of kit you chose, we will let you know when your wine is ready to bottle.

  • When you come in for your bottling appointment, we'll sterilize your bottles for you (or you can buy new ones from us for $1.25/bottle). As your bottles get filled, you'll use the air-powered corker to cork them, shrink-wrap the tops in the color of your choice, and apply your labels.

  • You can also choose to bag your wine, just ask.

Wine Storage Tips

Here are some wine storage tips to ensure top quality wine:

Do:

  • Store your wine upright for the first 3 to 5 days.

  • After that, store your wine on its side to keep the cork moist.

  • Store your wine in a cool, dark place.

  • Your wine should be stored where the temperature is CONSISTENT. Bright light, movement, and temperature fluctuations can negatively affect the quality of your wine.

Do Not:

  • Do not constantly turn your wine. Red wines will sometimes dust (leave residue on the inside of the bottle). This is normal. Simply decant your wine.

  • Do not store your wine directly on a cement floor. Put a thick piece of wood under your wine storage boxes.

  • Do not store your wine on heated floors.
