Artful Winemaker is also a perfect holiday entertaining idea.

"Already a wide-spread trend in Canada, much like home beer brewing in the U.S., making wine at home is an emerging trend in the states," commented Melanie Smyth, marketing associate for Artful Winemaker.

After five years of research and development, we are now able to give customers an affordable hands-on wine making experience with all the tools needed to make great wine on their kitchen counter."

By purchasing additional Artful Winemaker refill wine kits ($59.99) the system can be reused time and time again to produce all of the great tasting wines available including Cabernet Shiraz, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir and Riesling.
