Fine Vine Wines, LLC, The Wine Maker's Toy Store, starting selling quality
home wine making kits in February 2003, after the
owner discovered how easy is was to make retail
quality wines from the luxury of his own home. Fine
Vine Wines is here to promote and encourage the
home wine making market, be it through providing
guidance, advice, tips and hopefully, supplying
the home vintner with all of the equipment and
supplies they need to make this quality wine.
Our wine making kits take less than 4 total hours
to make 30 bottles of retail quality wine. Our
wine making kits are so easy; you can even make
wine while watching TV. Our wine making
kits are so good, Fine Vine Wines, LLC guarantees
your success. If you are not satisfied

The Company is owned and operated out of Dallas,
TX. The owners have made over 300 batches of
wine, which translates into 1,800 gallons or 9,000
bottles (They made sure they stayed under the
legal limit!). All of this wine was made from
home wine making kits manufactured by Winexpert, Mosti Mondiale, Cellar Craft
and R.J. Spagnols and frozen grapes and Must from Brehm Vineyards and Mosti Mondiale. There are several companies
