Make Your Own Barrel

Owner of 5814 Winery doing his first punch down of his cabernet.

Getting The Grapes: We choose our grapes from some of the most coveted vineyards in California. You can track down your own fruit and haul it to our winery or we can help you with that.

Let Us Help: We would love to help you define and make your wine. So that you end up with a great finished wine. We recently won the 2010 WineMaker International Amateur Wine Competition (Winemaker Magazine) For our 2008 Chardonnay.

Get Together’s: Meet really incredible people at our events. Our fellow home wine makers share our passion for wine and winemaking. Whether it is at barrel tastings, visits to other vineyards, holiday winemaker dinners or viticulture classes, you’ll learn a lot about the winemaking process and have fun doing it.

It’s All Hands-On: We are all about helping you with hands-on Experience. Learn how to make wine by getting your hands dirty. And then when your wine is ready to be bottled, we can help you create a custom wine label that’s the perfect expression of your wine.

Do you just want crush camp, blending session, or just want to watch how it is done? We hope you will come join us, send us an email to
