About Wine Works

Our Story

Here at Wine Works, our customers are like family and after more than 30 years, we have a BIG family that keeps on growing! Wine Works has been proudly serving South Georgian Bay wine and beer makers since 1989.

Our customers craft their own fabulous vintages for a fraction of the cost of commercial wines, while enjoying all of the taste and quality that some say are even better than many store bought brands.

We welcome you to Wine Works where making your own wines, coolers, ciders and beers is not just affordable, it’s also fun, easy, social and something you can be proud to share with family and friends. We’re here to help.

Whether you visit the shop in Collingwood, Ontario or visit here online, our team at Wine Works offers you a hearty welcome to the world of winemaking.


Meet The Team

At Wine Works, our team is like family (literally, in some cases). Each team member plays an important role in making sure your wine gets made and enjoyed by you.


A little bit wacky but always friendly and helpful, John genuinely cares about your wine experience. John has owned this business for over 20 years, having the pleasure of helping countless locals find a new way to enjoy wine.


If you've ever had wine in-store here at Wine Works, you can be sure Barry was a part of that. Barry plays a critical role in every wine that is made here, and is the main winemaker at Wine Works.


The up-and-comer, always innovating and changing things to improve your experience -- generally confusing John and Barry in the process. An important part of the team, Kris keeps the systems running, wine flowing and can usually be found helping customers at every opportunity.


Vinnie is part mascot, part communicator. Vinnie sends out our notifications and helps keep you updated on orders, also making appearances around the website or other communications.
