Yes, Christmas Is Coming
Again this year we enjoyed a long, lazy summer that at one point seemed never ending. So for many of us our thoughts have only recently (and reluctantly) turned to the quickly approaching holiday season. 
So, if you've not yet had a chance to get your holiday wines started, this is the time to do it. Dither no more!

Come on in or give us a call, and we'll get you all set up in no time.
Christmas Gifts
Cleaning and Storing Your Bottles
We know that preparing your bottles for bottling can seem to be an overwhelming task, but it really does not need to be a chore.

Being inherently lazy by nature, I'm always looking for the easiest way. This is what works best for me: 

As soon as you empty a wine bottle, just put an inch or two of water in it right away. When you're ready to clean and store it (maybe even a few days later), simply rinse the bottle  thoroughly  with  hot  water until it runs perfectly clear, remove the label, and store the bottle upside down in your wine box. 

Cleaned bottles stored upside down will ensure dust or insects cannot contaminate them. And they'll be ready without any additional preparation to bring back to  Wine Kitz Ottawa  to be sanitized for your next bottling.

If you have some bottles that are very dirty, soak them overnight in a solution of hot water, bleach and dishwasher detergent. You may need a bottle brush to reach the stubborn spots.  Never use dish or hand soap  to wash your bottles. Rinse your cleaned bottles well and store them upside down in your wine box.

It's important to know that it  only takes 1 dirty bottle  to contaminate your entire batch of wine at bottling and  void our guarantee .

We'd hate to have that happen to you.

Thanksgiving Hours
Wine Kitz Ottawa will be  closed 
Sunday, October 13
Monday, October 14
for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
As you know, as a practicing Sommelier I never get tired of tasting wines. I make a point of participating in tasting events at least a couple of times a month so I can ensure every wine we custom make for you is comparable to (and in many cases so much better than) the commercial wines available through government outlets. 

Wine Kitz Ottawa has welcomed dozens of new customers over the past few months, most of whom have been referred by current customers. We love when you share stories of serving your  Wine Kitz  wines to guests who rave about our product, and I love when they bring in a favourite commercial wine for me to match and are blown away by the results.

The  Wine Kitz Ottawa team works hard seven days a week to provide superior customer service and superior wines to every one of our customers. We appreciate your trust in us and love having you drop by to visit.
I hope you have an opportunity to share good stories, good laughs and good wines with friends and family this coming Thanksgiving. There is so much to be thankful for.
