"I first went into the store about 2 years ago to get some advice on how to make my own blackberry wine. The staff were super friendly and shared a lot of information even though I was not an existing customer and making the wine at my own home. They even provided me with some free yeast and other chemicals that I was having trouble locating in Nanaimo. Today I brought in 40 lbs of blackberries to make port. The manager opened up a bottle of her own port for tasting. The wine was excellent and I am looking forward to my own 2 batches in 2 months time." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Susanne Y. (Google review)
"I recently discovered The Winery in Coombs while searching for winemaking supplies. I was extremely impressed with the service I received from the owner. Although I have been making wine at home for many years I learned a lot on various topics of winemaking and learned how to solve some of the problems I have taken for granted. This is the only wine store I will be dealing with from now on. Many thanks to them. Their prices for supplies is the best I have found also." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Brian H. (Google review)
