Wines by Design
Quality, without the cost
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.
Where there is no wine there is no love.
Wine is bottled poetry.
Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance.
A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.
Wine cheers the sad, revives the old, inspires the young, and makes weariness forget his toil.
Age and glasses of wine should never be counted.
Wine and friends are a great blend.
Men are like wine—some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.
I cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food.
My only regret in life is that I didn’t drink more wine.
Beer is made by men, wine by God!
Wine is the most civilized thing in the world.
Life is too short to drink bad wine.
Wine is life.
I love everything that’s old: old friends, old times, old manners, old books, old wine.
Wine… the intellectual part of the meal.
If food is the body of good living, wine is its soul.
