Vint Hill Craft Winery; Create Your Own Wine

Are you a wine lover or think about how if you had the chance you could create a great wine?  Vint Hill Craft Winery will give you the chance to work with a winemaker and create a barrel of your own wine.  And as if that was not enough you also will create your label design and at the end of a year your wine will produce 25 cases.  Not sure if you have the time it takes to make a wine from “berry to bottle”, no problem.  At Vint Hill Craft Winery you can participate as much or as little as you would like.  However, you can  always watch over wine with secured web cameras.

The first step in deciding about your wine is picking your grape varietal and your region.  Choose from Virginia Chardonnay, California Cabernet Sauvignon or maybe Washington State Voigner.  There are many choices for you from these three power house states.  Once you make that decision than you move on to French Oak Barrels, Hungarian Oak, American Oak or Virginia Oak.  This is just the beginning but as you can see you really do have all the decisions in creating your very own wine.

Tasting Wines at Vint Hill Craft Winery is also very different as each of their ‘Vitners’ makes 25 cases of wine, some of them decide to leave some behind for others to share.  So, when you go in to taste, you can see what others in the area have made as well as taste wines made by Vint Hill Craft Winery.

At the end of the day, you will have the most interesting experience of amazing wine.  Go by in Friday thru Sunday to see what wine you like and maybe what you can bottle at Vint Hill.
