The Wine Not International Custom Winery Franchise Info
A Wine Not International Custom Winery franchise is a working winery equipped with our exclusive, state-of-the-art winery systems. This is a full working winery producing a large variety of wines made from juices secured from the world’s finest wine regions. Many of these wines are unique to
Wine Not International and cannot be found in wine stores or supermarkets.
Wine Not International wineries are full service federally bonded wineries equipped with state of the art fermentation equipment. Wine is made in single batches (23 liters) and in larger volumes (starting at 550 liters and up to 2,200 litres) in our exclusive wine making tank system. We also provide direct retail and wholesale sales, customized labeling and a unique customer participation experience.
Each Wine Not International winery maintains a fermentation room, bottling area, storage area, retail area, tasting bar and outdoor patio if applicable. There is also a custom label making station where your guests can design personalized labels in minutes. Otherwise your wine is labeled with your own design suited to your community, landscape or winery theme. Further to this there is a giftware area stocked with wine related items such as wine glasses, decanters, stoppers, books and other related wine paraphernalia.

Wine Not International Winery.

History of Wine Not International
The first Wine Not winery opened in 1993 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In 2002 we took our unique and successful concept into the United States. Wineries there would take on a new dimension with the advent of our exclusive wine making systems which allowed the winemaker the ability to produce larger quantities with the highest quality product.
Business continued to grow and by 2004 there were 36 Wine Not wineries throughout Ontario, the Maritimes and 5 U.S. locations. This growth attracted the attention of the largest winery in Canada and in 2005 Andres Wines purchased the Canadian portion of our business allowing the
Wine Not International team to focus its resources in the developing U.S. market.
Wine Not International continues to be the leader in the industry of Custom Wineries and Wine Pubs and with our franchisees we look forward to continued growth and success. We invite you to join our growing team of successful winemakers. We are very excited to bring our Winery Franchise concepts into the U.S.
