White 100% Grape Juices

Several qualities for which grapes might be valued in winemaking, especially fragrance, color and varietal character, are largely left intact during the simple pasteurization process, which differs greatly from that of the concentration process.

Varietal grapes from around the world are gathered and sorted by type to provide the highest quality of 100% juices available to Canadian Wine makers.

100% juices have a much longer shelf life than wine made from concentrates.  Wines produced from 100% juice will last 2-4 years with proper storage and racking and age incredibly well.  Remembering that all wines purchased from the LCBO are already at least a year old when they hit the shelves, wine produced from 100% juice will age and taste similarly after 1 year.

Average price for a 29-30-bottle batch of wine - $150.00-$170.00 ($5.00 per bottle)

Taste comparison to a bottle purchased at the LCBO  $12.00 to $20.00
