Craft winemaking has never been easier!

You don’t have to be a master vintner to create the perfect wine. All you need are the perfect tools, which are all here in our Sussex store. Our wine kits are made with top-of-the-line equipment and the highest quality ingredients. We partnered with some of the industry’s most respected suppliers to offer our lines of delicious wine recipes.

Starting your wine takes just 5 minutes. Then, all you need do is bottle it (in-store! or at home). After bottling, you can enjoy many of the specialty items right away, most wines will benefit from weeks to months of aging.

Whatever you choose, you will get excellent value for your money!

Crafters Vineyard uses only the best wine kits available. We proudly offer RJS Craft Winemaking kits because they are the world leader, consistently winning more medals at amateur winemaking competitions than all other wine kits combined. Our wine kits contain concentrated grape juice, pure grape juice, or a blend of the two. Generally, the wine kits based on concentrated juice make a lighter flavoured, softer wine that can be consumed soon after bottling. Kits with a high proportion of pure juice take longer to make, require longer aging, and will make a wine that is richer and more flavourful.

Cru Select wines are a treasure for wine enthusiasts looking to try new grape varieties and wine styles from around the world. Made from only the finest juice from the world’s best vineyards, our wines exemplify sophistication you can taste in every glass.

From the noble golden Chardonnay to the alluring deep Cabernet Sauvignon, Cru Select wines have the right body, clarity and bouquet to satisfy even the most discerning palate. Our white wine selection ranges from full-bodied and oaked to refreshingly crisp and light. Select red wines include GenuWine Winery Dried Grape Skins, which provide deep colour, chewy tannins, tantalizing flavours and complex aromas.
