Wine makers

Welcome to Southshore Uncorked, Inc.

We are happy you’re here.

When you walk into our store you will be greeted by a member of our friendly staff.

Here at Southshore Uncorked we are skillfully making wine by hand.  One small batch at a time. This is the true meaning of handcrafted wine the way Europeans have been doing it for centuries.

Take a look around at our wide variety of wine kits. We carry kits from Winexpert, Island Mist Fruit Wines, RJ Spagnols and others. We have red, white, blush, and fruit wine as well.

Don’t see what you’re looking for? Let us know and we’ll order it for you.

Don’t know what you’re looking for? Ask for a sample or two. We will let you try the wine we’ve handcrafted from our kits. We can help you find just the right wine for your taste.

Once you have chosen the wine kit you would like to craft for yourself; we will make an appointment for you to come in and experience handcrafting for yourself, or if we have an opening, we can help you right then to get started.

Come into our wine crafting kitchen and let’s get started. We have all the equipment in house for you to use. Each kit makes anywhere from 27 to 30 bottles of wine. You can keep them all for yourself or share the kit with someone else.

When your wine is ready, we call to schedule your bottling appointment. Bottling is the best part because this is when you get to take your wine home. Bring friends and family to share the fun experience. Wine bottling is an occasion in itself and we have had many a fine bottling party here on our premises.

We have the bottles, corks, custom labels, shrink capsules and accessories to go with your new wine.

Perhaps you are not quite ready to craft an entire kit. This is not a problem because we have expanded our business. You can  buy our wine by the bottle or the glass.

Step into our Sonoma style tasting lounge and sample some wine.  Maybe you want to take home a few bottles to see which ones ‘ grow on you ‘.  Maybe you just want to come by after a hard day at work and enjoy our Happy Hour pricing on wine by the glass.

Every week, we feature 2 or 3 different wines and offer them at a special sale price. At the top of the page, you can click on ‘wine news’  to see our Wines of the Week or like us on Facebook to see our featured wines this week.

We also have several events in the store every month. Seating is limited for in-store events so be sure to call and reserve your spot early. Like us on Facebook to see what’s happening this month.

Here at Southshore Uncorked we are very civic minded.  You will see us out and about at community sponsored events such as the Apollo Beach Manatee Festival of the Arts, The Ruskin Seafood Festival and many others.

Regardless of how you wish to enjoy your wine, we can accommodate you.

Stop by and see us.  We look forward to meeting you.
