Once Upon a Vine, LLC was created by Pat Bassett and Lori Stover in 2018. We believe that the wine drinking communities of Hernando and surrounding counties in Florida will enjoy making their own wine that is not only pleasing to the palate, but contains less sulfites and costs much less than store bought wines. We offer wine making instruction and assistance in our store front as well as offering retail sales of wine making supplies to those who would like to make their wine at home.
Being able to make your own wine with your own personalized labels is fun and a great way to spend time with family and friends. We offer personalized service and the best wine making kits and supplies in the industry at affordable prices. Each kit makes 28-32 bottles of wine! (DON'T BE OVERWHELMED by 28-32 bottles of wine! Bring a couple of friends and make a kit together!)
Don't just read about us! Come on in and enjoy the experience of creating your own personalized wine!

Step 1-choosing your wine kit, mixing, and starting the fermenting process
Your second visit with your wine is "degassing." You transfer your wine from the bucket to a glass carboy, add a few ingredients, and your wine goes back in the Wine Cellar for a couple more weeks.
The third time you visit your wine, you will "rack" it. This is a very short visit. You will transfer your wine from one carboy to another.
The final step to making your wine from a wine kit at Once Upon a Vine is Bottling Day! This is always the most fun step of them all. You clean your bottles, fill them with your wine, put corks in them, shrink wrap the PVC sleeves on the bottles, put them in their cases, and take them home!
