Are you tight on space for brewing and bottle aging?  Perhaps you just don't want two cases of one kind of beer?  We've been developing our very own small batch homebrew kit for some time now and it is now ready to go public: The Dog Day Mini-Brewery!  This is a real kit - one that includes a fermenter with a real air lock, bottles, hydrometer,  bottle filler, thermometer, sanitizer, all malt ingredients, etc. We think you'll be impressed!  This is a scaled down version of our popular line of homebrewing kits, but instead of yielding 5 gallons (~9 six-packs), you'll get 16 half liter (16.9 fl. oz.) bottles (included).  We you purchase one of these kits, you will have the option of receiving any of our six Dog Day Recipe Kits: Beagle Blonde Ale, Pit Bull Pale Ale, Basset Hound Brown Ale, Weimaraner Wheat Beer, Schnauzerfest, and Texas Bock-ser.  There is a catch (you knew there was a catch, didn't you?): We were only able to get enough fermenters to make 9 of these kits, at least until early Febrew-ary , or so.  So, if you are interested, we suggest you buy sooner rather than later.  Here's the link!


Island Mist Merlot-Ho-Ho - $74.99 $59.99!

We are limited to the inventory on hand, as these were pre-order only kits.  We have a few extras, so if these sound appetizing, we suggest you act now!

Also new in the shop are Winexpert's latest offerings: Island Mist Skinny Mist Wine Kits. What's that you say? These wine kits are fruit infused and anything but skinny on flavor! We've paired the refreshing notes of fresh fruit with crisp and juicy varietals for an incredible taste that's less than 80 calories per serving. So go ahead and enjoy, these Mists are skinny jeans approved!

Slight on calories, bursting with flavors of sweet, juicy pineapple and mango paired with the refreshing citrus notes of Riesling.

Flavors of freshly picked peaches against a backdrop of crisp and subtly floral Gewurztraminer. Lean on calories, mean on taste.


Merlittle calories, merlots of flavor. Round, fruit-forward Merlot gets a juicy infusion of succulent blackberry.

P.S. By the way, the sign on the photo has been "photoshop-ed".  Any signage must comply with local civic association deed restrictions, so we're flying under the radar now with an indoor banner by one of our windows.  One more hurdle to clear!


This year marks Winexpert's 25th Anniversary of their Limited Edition progarm! This milestone provides an opportunity to reflect on the past and look forward to the future.  In honor of the 25th Anniversary, Winexpert is reintroducing four of your favorite wines plus a special anniversary blend, aptly named Triumph. Triumph is a blend created especially for our consumers and is a celebration of the achievement which defines this Limited Edition program. We hope you'll enjoy celebrating this milestone with us.  And, oh, yes. . . Each kit comes with coordinating labels.  The only way to insure that you can get in on these wonderful wine kits is to pre-order the kits.  We will not be able to order any more of these kits after December 6! As the expression goes, "Act now to avoid disappointment and future regret!"

January 2015
Australian Shiraz Viognier
- $139.99
Riverland, South Australia - This sun-kissed agricultural haven of South Australia boasts ripe examples of Shiraz and Viognier.  The cool waters of the Murray River act as an irrigator for this declared reserve, which lies about 225 km north east of Adelaide.

German Riesling - $135.99
Mosel Valley,Germany - Like scenes from a postcard, the Mosel river winds its way at the bottom of a valley with 700ft slopes draped in vineyards. These steep slopes are treacherous even for the bravest of grape growers, where the Riesling grape is grown in abundance and is hailed as the great grape of Germany.  At 49° latitude north, grapes are at their northernmost limit in terms of cultivation, but the warm sunny southern-facing slopes of this magnificent valley bring the Riesling to its full potential.

February 2015 
Washington State Triumph
- $139.99
Yakima Valley, Washington - Overlooked by Mount Adams and moderated by the Yakima River, this valley is Washington's coolest and oldest wine region.  Despite this honor, its macroclimate allows Bordeaux's (or "Meritage" in North America) three big star grapes to ripen well here.  The Yakima Valley is known for its agricultural abundance, and grapes are quickly becoming recognized as the powerhouses.

March 2015
California Trio Blanca
- $135.99
Lake County, California - Northern California has some of the oldest vineyards on the west coast, with Spanish Missionaries planting back in the 18th century.  Today, the sunny rolling hills of the Lake County are moderated by the cool waters of Clear Lake, the oldest lake in North America.  With all of this history, the land is ideally suited for growing a variety of grapes.

April 2015 
Italian Super Tuscan with Grape Skins
- $163.99
Tuscany - There's a reason artists and lovers flock to this area of the world.  Yes, its landscape is arguably among the most beautiful in the world, but more importantly the wine is legendary.  Located at the same latitude as Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, this area of Italy sees warm, sunny summer days and nights where the Mediterranean provides a fresh cooling breeze.  Winemakers have been making wine here since the 8th century BC and have decided to dedicate roughly 80% of the vineyards to red grape varietals.
