I wanted to reach out to you to let you know that we are taking this seriously and are taking every precaution here at our store. The health and safety of our customers is a high priority for us. We are taking the following steps to ensure and support everyone’s health and well being at our facility: - Reinforcing our already rigorous standards and procedures for food safety and personal hygiene. - Working closely and communicating with our supplier partners and staff to ensure frequent hand washing and using hand sanitizers. - Continual sanitation of all high touch surfaces including counters, tables, pay pads, door handles, equipment etc. - Availability of hand Sanitizers and/or washing station - Scheduling of no more than 1 bottler at a time and scheduling longer appointments for everyone so there is no overlap and we have extra time to clean and sanitize
For the health and safety of everyone, we are also suggesting the following: -use the tap feature on your debit card in order to avoid handling cash -if you see others in the store when you arrive, consider waiting outside until they leave so everyone can feel comfortable with social distancing

How easy is it to make your own wine?
We get a lot of questions about making wine. The most asked question is "how hard is it to make my own wine?". The answer is "It's so easy!" Here at Kootenay Winecrafters, we are licensed to help you through the winemaking process right here in the store. You don't need to have any equipment or winemaking knowledge.
All it takes is three simple steps:
1) Visit our store. We will help you choose a perfect selection for your tastes and needs from over 100 wine styles! All you have to do is add the ingredients and start the fermentation process with a sprinkling of yeast! Magic!
2) After 4-8 weeks, depending on the wine you have chosen, come back to bottle your wine which has been expertly guided through the winemaking process by us! Bottle your wine, cork it, and then finish your bottle presentation with a wide assortment of labels and shrink tops – you can even personalize your own labels to really make it yours! Express yourself – this is the fun part!
3) Take it home and enjoy! This is the really fun part! The wines you make will benefit from some aging in the bottle . We can help you with some recommendations. Then enjoy the fruits of your labour with your friends and family – don’t forget to share!!
