Rancho Cucamonga’s new “old” winery, is pleased
to announce it’s Estate Vineyard Home Winemaking Program

Have your own home vineyard?

If you have your own home vineyard, we can assist you in making your own Estate wine. An important part of our winery’s mission, which is very different than most any existing winery within our region, is to assist the home winemaker. We can provide all that you need to make your own custom, premium home wine(s) from your estate vines at our historic facility!

The cost of home winemaking at our facility using your own fruit is $12 per finished bottle (including custom label). In addition to the standard winemaking materials, you may also opt to choose add-ons such as custom aging in oak barrels and/or bottling in specialty bottles (smaller or larger format).

For your reference and planning, two well-bearing grapevines (10 pounds of fruit per vine) will produce around 1 gallon of finished wine. This equates to five 750ml bottles (or more if you opt to use smaller wine bottles, 500 or 375ml). Therefore, whatever the number of vines you have, you can do the math. If you believe your harvest will be smaller per vine, just reduce your math accordingly. If you need additional help, just contact us.

In order for us to ensure that we have plenty of supplies and materials available to assist you and others, please email us to let us know that you plan to bring in your grapes to the winery after harvest and a date/time. It will also help if you can give us an estimate of how many pounds of fruit you think you will have, as well as the type(s) of grape(s). Please email your information to HomeWineMaking@MountainVistaWinery.com.

Want to make Estate wine at your own home?

If you want to make your Estate wine at your own home, we can provide you with the information and expert guidance you need to produce a great wine, and ensure that you have only the equipment and supplies that you need, not what a book, Youtube video, or a wine supply retailer tells you that you need. We can help you have fun and success, while also saving you money and frustration. We love to help home winemakers!

Don’t have winemaking equipment at your home? Need direction and guidance? Perhaps you have your own home winemaking setup but you need supplies, additional equipment, or just need information? Need help harvesting? We’re here to help. We want you to be successful in your home winemaking endeavor…new winemaker or experienced, we are here to help. Please contact us with your needs and we will do all we can to assist.

A lot of our help is free, especially if it’s just answering questions or providing simple direction. If your needs are more extensive, we charge a consulting fee of $25/hr. We’ll let you know if your needs go that far.

If you would like to turn your home winemaking into a more festive event, either at the winery or at your home, please inquire about “crush party” services. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to assisting you in any way possible. Feel free to contact George Walker at 909-560-7834 or email him at George@MountainVistaWinery.com with questions and for more information.
