Winemaking Experience

Learn the basics of small-bath winemaking in a 2 session experience guided by our winemaker.

Make Your Own Wine

The Urban Winery is the best choice for people looking to experience winemaking. We specialize in small lots, as little as six gallons and offer complete, expert winemaking services; a hands-on experience; a great downtown location; and an intimate, authentic, and fulfilling experience.

Winemaking is an astonishing thing. It can be influenced by technology, and we are truly in awe of that…  But we can’t resist getting our hands in on the action.
– Georgia Callis

We provide a portfolio of premium wine to choose from, all the necessary equipment, a spacious facility and the expertise that allows you to have an amazing experience in a fun environment.

With our guidance, you will select a varietal and drive all the winemaking decisions to produce the style of wine you desire. Throughout the process, you’ll learn a ton, have a lot of fun, and end up with a wine you’ll be proud to share for years to come.

We also love corporate functions! We’ve worked with local businesses to create their own wine for 50 year anniversary gifts, client gifts, and as a teambuilding exercise.
