Hey Guys and Girls,

So I'm very new to winemaking and already finding it hard to get some stuff locally.

Do you seasoned veterans have any recommendations for where to shop online?


TIA,
Dave

I've googled :) But I'm looking for the tried and trusted suppliers.

Thanks for you reply though :)

Ok I just received my Buon Vino SuperJet from this company yesterday they were very good about working out a better price for the shipping and answered all my questions quickly ,like I said it's the first time i ordered from them but will probably order from them again without no problem . http://www.musca.com/store/item671.htm

This is another Canadian company but they are in NFLD so the shipping would be more .

I won't buy direct from USA because there can be a hassle at the border and hidden extra costs .So I would like to find more good Canadian companies .

If you're in Winnipeg there must be plenty of retail stores you can try, aren't there?

Dave:

Not many online suppliers in Canada. Don't know which (if any) of the US ones already mentioned will ship to Canada.

What exactly are you looking for?

Both of these came from another post on this forum:

http://www.highgravitybrew.com/

http://www.northernbrewer.com/

Both have flat rate shipping, but northern has a better selection. Northern's shipping is $7.99 but that doesn't include some heavy items like carboys.

High gravity is my favorite place for carboys and heavy stuff - $9.99 flat rate shipping. I've bought 4 carboys already from them. Great service, but it seems like they are focused a little more towards beer.

You'd think but there is really only 3 stores and between then only 2 kinds of yeast lalvan 1118 and 1116. None carry pH test strips or SO2 test kits.

So unless I just wanna do kits, don't get me wrong kits are ok, I'm kind of limited. Hence the need for online :)

I checked out http://finevinewines.com/ and found numerous bugs in the online store. I'm making a list of them and will send it to him. Other than that though his prices seem quite reasonable and it looks like he ships up here.

Thanks again to everyone who has replied.

Wade a sticky sounds like a great idea.

I bought my mini jet filter here for $125US. That is an untouchable price. Most of their prices are competitive but they must have a hell of a deal worked out for these. Yes they are very easy to deal with also.

Dave: only 3 stores? Wow, I'm surprised. Regina had 5 or 6 when I lived there in 2001. I would have thought Winnipeg was larger.

Are any of them RJ Spagnols dealers? Back in 2007, RJS distributed all 5 Lalvin yeasts that are available in 5g sizes. They also handled ph & SO2 kits.

Is there a Wne Kitz there? I know there wasn't 3-4 years ago, but thought I heard one had opened there since then. They used to get supplies from ABC Cork who carried all of that. However, Wine Kitz changed two years ago and the stores may not be dealing with ABC Cork anymore.

What do you mean by bugs at finevinewines? I have ordered from them over 30 times and never had a problem. I also mod for that forum.

Just remembered a couple of suppliers in the Niagara region. Note I have never ordered from them. Watsons does mail order, but I'm not sure about Vines to Vintages.

Thanks I'm going to check them out on my days off but off to work now .

Wade I think it's a good idea to sticky the list ,it's one thing I looked for right away when I got here .
