Our customers have been crafting their wine in Steveston since January 4, 2000. Whether this is your first winemaking experience or you’re a loyal long-time customer, you can rely on our knowledgeable team to guide you. We’ll help you select the wines that are right for you because we take time to learn what you like. For instance, knowing what you like to eat means we can suggest pairings.

Quality Product and Exceptional Service

I have been so happy with the service and quality at Steveston Winemakers. Truly, I cannot wait for my visits to the store to hang out with the staff and do some bottling. The quality they have recommended to me over the years has been outstanding, even to the point that most people can’t believe it’s a ‘homemade’ product. To that end, Bill recently helped me to get my family crest on it. For someone who can trace their roots back several hundred years, believe me, the product has to represent the family well … and it does! Thank you to Bill, Heather, Paul, Egon and Alfonso.

Easy, Fun and Tasty

Steveston Winemakers is fantastic! This was our first time making wine and it’s so easy! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, bottling was fun and the product is tasty! It’s been great having a few cases at home so we’re always ready to entertain guests or grab a bottle on our way to friends houses. We’re looking forward to our next batch!

Awesome Place, Great People, Great Wine, Huge Savings

Initially we were slightly concerned ordering 30 bottles of one type of wine until after the first batch only lasted a few months (we were hoping it was going to last years). We’re very loyal customers and have had no complaints whatsoever plus it’s a huge savings over the liquor store! And yes the wine is very good, no hangovers!

Great Service, Great Selection, Super Clean

I’ve been coming here since 2002 and followed them when they moved from their Moncton location. For those of you accustomed to the great service you get in the USA, then you’ll also be very pleased here. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, great selection, super clean premises and fair prices so what more do you need?

As your DIY winemaking experience begins, we’ll make sure you have fun while saving money. You’ll enjoy it so much, you’ll certainly want to tell your friends about it. It’s also environmentally friendly because you’ll re-use your bottles over and over again.
