  • “I have been bottling wine here for years, I think I have all the papers from the wine that I have made. Only thing I make about 7 batches at a time and they just seem to vanish. Hardest part is hauling them out of the car once I get home, as for bottling the wine all the staff are great .”
    – Verna Trace, Sep 2015
  • “The Thirsty Vintner has helped me and my friends make great wine on a budget through their good advice and helpful service..”
    – Oliver Talbot, Sep 2015
  • “Outstanding service every time I'm in. They're terrific about telling us about wines we're interested in trying and can often recommend a commercial wine that's similar so we can try it before buying a whole batch.”
    – Angela, Sep 2015
  • “I came over to the Thirsty Vintner with Myra ( Royal Oak Village Wine Works ) and the staff made the transition very easy. Their product range allows me to try new wines and I have not been disappointed.”
    – Michael Fibiger-Crossman, Sep 2015
  • “I first came to the Thirsty Vintner with my father, looking for a fun hobby we could both enjoy when he visited. I've been a regular customer ever since, and always appreciate the fantastic service and great staff! The wine is excellent but the experience is even better.”
    – Sarah Taylor, Sep 2015
  • “I started with The Thirsty Vintner 2 years ago and have made about 25 batches of wine - that's how much I love it there! The wine is always delicious - and the staff? They're the BEST. Sometimes I'll go put on a batch just for the entertainment value! No.”
