Wine Making

September comes with a lot of symbolism. It might mean the start of fall, back to school, football season, and more! To us, September is synonymous with Wine Grapes!

Keeping traditions alive is an important passion of our family and homemade wine has been a tradition for ages. You may remember helping your Nonno crush grapes or putting the cork in the bottle. Making wine is a yearly event that requires patience and hard work. Every wine maker has their own process!

We bring in a wide variety of wine grapes and juice every year for this custom. 

Our grapes come from a grower in California who we have been doing business with for over 30 years. The grower has a specific process when it comes to picking grapes– he chooses to leave the grapes on the vine to allow the sugar to continue to develop in the fruit. The sugar in the fruit is vital to the alcohol content that will be found in your homemade wine.

Some of the grape varieties include merlot, pinot noir, zinfandel, chardonnay, and more!

We offer juice from California or Italy, but juice has not arrived quite yet!

We have tons of supplies for your wine making process. From corks to bottles to pressers, we have the crucial tools you need to get your wine making process underway.  These supplies are available year round.

We sell wine grapes out of our warehouse located in Carol Stream and out of our Elmwood Park store.

First of the season wine grapes have been delivered. Juice is expected within the next two weeks! All grapes and juice are while supplies last!

  1. Rosella,

    Is there a place where I can view the varieties and prices for your grapes and juices? Also will wine grapes be available in the Elmwood Park location this year?
