Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few of the most common questions we get asked, if you can’t find the answer you’re looking for please contact us
Q: Can I sample the type of wine I want to buy before I make it?
A: Sorry but it’s against the law to offer samples of ready made wine. All of our wine is 100% guaranteed so if you don’t like it we’ll give you your money back or start you up a new batch at no extra cost.
Q: How much wine will one kit make?
A: All of our wine kits (4,5,6,and 8 week) make 30-750ml bottles. If you’re making Sherry, Port or Ice wine, one kit makes 30-375ml bottles or 15-750ml bottles.
Q: 30 bottles is too much for just me, can I split a batch with my friends?
A: Of course lots of groups bottle at Cork It, it’s a great way of trying different kinds of wine without breaking the bank. Bring some snacks and have fun, we have a great sound system and some people bring their own music too! Contact us for bottling appointments.
Q: What is included in the price of my wine kit?
A: Everything! Wine, all taxes, our service fees, corks, shrink wraps, labels, and bottles if you’re a first time customer. First time customers can choose between 25$ off of their wine kit or a set of 30 bottles free.
Q: Oh no what do I do if I don’t have enough bottles?
A: Relax, you have at least 4-8 weeks depending on your particular wine kit to collect bottles, raid your friends recycling bins and save all your bottles from the liquor store.

If you can’t get enough bottles together before your bottling appointment we have a selection of new and used bottles for sale here.
