2018 Wine Tasting Competition

Wines by Design

We’re in the business of helping you make wine! Whether you’re just starting out, or if you’re already an experienced vintner, we can help. Stop by for some instruction and help with your first batch or stop by for some supplies. We’ll be here!

Quality, without the cost

Wines By Design has been in business since 2006. While some things have changed, our love of quality wine production hasn’t! Whether you enjoy red or white, dry to sweet, we have something for everyone!

Let the wine making begin.

Welcome to Wines By Design!

We are a full service, on-premises wine making facility and wine-making kit supplier, located in Rochester NY. If you’re interested in making your own wine, come on in and we can help! We have hosted families, small groups, wedding parties and corporate team building events.

Interested in a wine making class? We’ve got you covered! We’re involved in a number of area Continuing Education programs (check out your local high school or town opportunities).

Alternatively, do you want something a little more intimate? Call and schedule a private wine making class. We can work with you to make your very own delectable wine.

Or, if you are already an experienced vintner and are simply looking for supplies, we can help with that too. While our primary focus is wine-kits, check in with us, if we don’t have it in stock, we can probably get it for you!

For more detail on how your time will be spent making your very own wine, please see: our process.

Wine is sunlight, held together by water.

Good Things

We cannot say enough good things about Wines By Design.

The quality of the wine is better than most bottles of wine you can buy at the store, plus you get to tell your friends and family you made it on your own!
