Fermentations! has been Toronto’s best place to make wine since 1993. We love what we drink, and make sure that every batch reflects our exacting standards. In fact, in blind tastings, wines made at Fermentations! have outscored commercial wines retailing at over three times the cost!
We rely on top quality ingredients and processes, not budget wine kits because great wine requires quality ingredients and superior methods. Over the years we have won numerous Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in competitions run by the Wine Judges of Canada as well as at the largest American wine competition, with over 3000 entries! We have been voted the best place to make wine in Toronto multiple times as well.
We are Toronto’s only store to use Grapemasters grapes, yes, real grapes for winemaking. Find our more about Grapemasters here. We also offer a great assortment of wines made from juices, giving you lots of opportunity to customise your wine by selecting from a wide range of juices, with options to add real grape skins to your reds, oak your wines the way you like, and more!
