Life-long wine enthusiasts

About Us

Providing a fun and enjoyable winemaking experience that’s meant to be shared.

The Wine Making Place is owned and operated by Sonny Trombley and his son, David Trombley. They are life-long wine enthusiasts who love talking about wine and, more importantly, helping people make the perfect wine for their enjoyment.

They first opened The Wine Making Place in the Napanee Mall in 1996 and moved to their present location on Mill Street West in downtown Napanee in 2018. The Mill Street location offers a bright, sunny space to work your wine-making magic.

However, the real charm of The Wine Making Place is getting to talk with Sonny and David. They are not only knowledgeable about the process and what makes a good wine, but they are enthusiastic about answering your questions, whether you are new to the process or have been bottling your own wine for years. Browse the different types of wine available. Get advice on what to make from Sonny and David. Start the process! Everything you need is onsite, along with expert guidance to make sure that your wine turns out great. Wine-lovers come to The Wine Making Place to ferment, bottle and cork a wine that they are proud to have on their table!
