Make Your Own Wine Experience

At The Winery at Olney, you can be the vintner!

In what can only be described as a fun-filled and rewarding process, you have the unique opportunity to participate hands-on in making your own batch of wine. The entire process only takes 30 days, at which point you will be going home with 28-30 bottles of great tasting wine—each with your own custom designed label. 

The first step is deciding which of our 30 wines you are going to make.  Since each of the customer batches is a smaller version of our own wine making process, you can sample a variety of our wines to find the one you enjoy the most.

You will be directly involved in the initial steps of mixing, stirring, and adding in the yeast to start the fermentation process and then return to The Winery 30 days later to bottle, cork, and label your own vintage.  We take care of the various steps in-between (stabilizing, racking, & filtering). 

Our talented graphic artist, Dale, will work hand-in-hand with you in creating the design of your choice for your label. 

FAQs

How much does it cost?
Our Make Your Own Wine batches (28-30 bottles) range in price anywhere from $320 up to $599.  For a complete price list, go to Our Wines page.  The batch pricing is listed in the third column. 

Do I save money by making my own wine as opposed to buying wine by the bottle?
Absolutely!  You save between 20-25% off our normal retail pricing for our individual bottles of wine. 

Can I really make good wine in just 30 days? 
Yes.  It is a myth that old wine is always better.  The reality is that in most cases, that's simply not true. Most wines are made to be consumed within a year or two of their release. The rare exceptions come with a lot of responsibilities attached, beginning with proper storage.  Some of our red wines will benefit from some aging in the bottle, but the white and fruit wines are as good as they’re ever going to get right out of the tank. 

Do I need to make an appointment to make my own wine?
It depends.  If it’s not too busy when you come in, most of the time we will be able to start you on your wine making journey right then.  But if you call (301-570-1907) or email (info@TheWineryAtOlney.com) us ahead of time, we will be more than happy to reserve a time of your choice for you.
