Christmas deliveries and hours: Last day to order to get your deliveries by Christmas for urban areas: North Island-Thurs 21st, South Island-Wed 20th. Rural can take severa days longer. Note these dates are aligned with delivery targets and are not guarantees.
We will be open over the Christmas break, but freight providers do not work on statutory holidays, so no deliveries will take place on statutory holidays. We may not despatch orders containing yeast immediately to avoid yeast sitting on the network over a weekend or long weekend.
We will be answering support queries over the Christmas period within the 24 hour service standard. However it may take longer than usual.
Hot weather and delivery timeframes: With this very hot weather we are experiencing we may avoid sending items containing yeast over a weekend. If relevant please include delivery instructions which avoid leaving orders including yeast sitting in the sun. Thanks for your understanding.
Merry Christmas! Thanks for your business in 2017 and here's to a wonderful 2018.
[The above figures are all calculated on your wine wine costing $1 per bottle to make. The actual cost may be less or more depending on how much you spend on fruit and sugar and whether you buy your ingredients in bulk (much cheaper) or in a kit (more expensive, but more convenient)].
We all know it's hard to get by living on a budget; particularly if you are doing without those small luxuries that make life pleasurable. For many of us (including this winemaker!) being able to enjoy a glass of wine is one of those luxuries; not so much though, if you're feeling guilty about blowing the household budget.
When you make your own wine, you can enjoy having a drink knowing that it has cost you next to nothing.
Now you don't need to spend ages searching out cheap wine - you can enjoy your own wine which you made for the fraction of what even the cheapest supermarket wine will cost you.
