Wine Kitz has been in operation since 1959 (at which point it operated under the name Wine Art), and has since established itself as a leader in the consumer wine-making industry. Our company manufactures its own wine kits, using grapes selected from the world’s top vineyards and wineries, and, using their state-of-the-art facilities and innovative product development, produces wine kits to satisfy even the most discerning palates. Because we manufacture our own product we can confidently stand 100% behind the finished product. If you’re ever unsatisfied with wine that you’ve made with us, simply bring it back and we’d be happy to replace your batch. We’re wine lovers too, and we want to help you to discover new wines and discover old favorites in a new way.
The current owners, Bob and Cathy Fullarton, took over the Wine Kitz Pickering store in May 2002, when it was still located in the Pickering Town Centre. In December of that year, the store moved to its present (and much more spacious) home in the Rougemount Plaza, on the north-west corner of Kingston Rd. and Rougemount, in Pickering, Ont.
With over 1200 square-feet of space in which to brew and bottle wine and beer, as well as new bottling equipment (including a 30-bottle washer and automatic corker) to make your experience as easy and enjoyable as possible, the change of scenery has certainly been a pleasant upgrade for both staff and clients. Come and visit us! We look forward to showing you how we can help you enjoy more of the wine and beer you love at a fraction of the cost of their commercially-produced counterparts!
