Located close to Passaic and Bergen Counties, Your Own Winery is a 2,500 square foot Wine Making Shop giving guests the feel of their own private wine cellar. At Your Own Winery, guests select and create their own very special and personalized wine.
Guests can sample several different wines at no charge before choosing a wine to make. The selected wine starts with a kit of ready-to-ferment, concentrated wine juice (no grape crushing required) and all the necessary ingredients. Our expert shop staff, guide guests personally how to handle each step to create their own perfect wine.
Each wine-making session takes 6–8 weeks, with guests completing 3 or 4 in-shop wine-making dates of approximately 1 hour each In the final bottling and labeling session guests select the bottle type and color they want to use, and create their own personalized bottle label for their batch of wine.
Your Own Winery is a completely independent wine making shop, not affiliated with any franchise or commercial winery. As an independent shop we enjoy unrestricted ability to source wine juice and product from suppliers throughout the US and Canada, who in turn source wine grapes from vineyards around the world. We keep over 50 different wine juices in stock at all times including many options for all the traditional red and white wine varietals, plus many unique red and wine blends and sweet flavored wines not available in stores. We also can special order at no extra charge over 200 additional wines.
Your Own Winery has a retail section offering a wide variety of wine enjoyment merchandise and wine-making supplies for the home wine maker.
Following a lifetime of tasting and enjoying wines of all types, visiting vineyards and wineries throughout the US and Canada, and then discovering the great fun and joy of making our own wine, opening our own wine-making shop so others could experience the same was an easy decision. As long-time residents of Passaic County, New Jersey, it was only natural to locate our shop close to home, so all our friends and family could experience the great fun of wine-making. We hope you enjoy the experience of making your own wine at Your Own Winery as much as we do.
