“"We have had only the best and most friendly service since the day we became clients at our Port Moody store. We have never had a wine we didn't like. A few that weren't our most favorite, but never a bad one. It's clean, quick, easy on the wallet, and most of all, the staff are great, like old friends. Thank you, Micheal and Sandra "”

“"Just started to drink my oak barreled Petit Verdot from August of 2010. Amazing. Also recently tried a bottle of the oak barreled Meritage we made in October of 2010. Unbelievably lovely! Kind of makes the always scrumptious Brunello we bottled in between seem average. What a great batch of wines. These products are absolutely outstanding! Thank you Sandra and Michael for a super experience. "”

“"I love the quick , easy & fun visits with Sandra & Michael over bottling my fave Australian Shiraz..but , guess what ? Due to their cyber tech promo , while I was labeling , I saw their Pineapple & Pear Pinot Grigio slide &... ordered it..looking forward to that bottling visit ! Savouring it too , of course !"”

– Gabriela Evans, October 2012

“"I had to open a second bottle of the Limited Edition Douro Tinto from Portugal that we bottled in 2011 to be sure it was as good as my first impression was. Thanks to Sandra and Michael and Winexperts, I now enjoy so many different wines and grapes simply by always buying the limited edition series. I would never have know to choose this wine and I am really glad I did because it is spectacular. Up there with the Petit Verdot and the Meritage from a year earlier. Yum! Thanks"”

“"Great people, great service and great products. If you're interested in winemaking in the tri-cities area you should definitely visit Beyond the Grape."”

– Sean Watson, July 2012

“"Attended a very informative hands on lesson in Beer making this afternoon at Beyond the Grape. As usual I was enthralled with Tim Vandergrift's lessons. He is as passionate and knowledgeable about beer and chemistry as he is about wine and food. Michael Druce and Sandra Taylor Croney are the ever great hosts. They showed just how easy it was to use the Brewers Best kits. They take you through the complete process of making the wort and adding the hops, racking the first ferment to bottling; all in 2 hours. Well worth the money and time. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in taking on this fun and rewarding hobby. I am looking forward to getting my starter kit and first kit and eventually coming up with my own profiles. "”

– Greg Cossey, September 2013

“I never thought that U-brew wine could taste so good! Our neighbour introduced Beyond the Grape to us 2 years ago and we've been loyal customers ever since.

“Always friendly and great service. Completely organized. We always enjoy coming to Beyond The Grape to bottle our wine. The only suggestion I could give is the choice to either phone in for bottling time or book on line. If you could add that to your web site, that would be great. That is how I always both ordered my wine and booked my bottling time at the winemaking place we went to before we switched to Beyond The Grape”

– Terri F., February 2015

“Modern, clean, friendly and great wine. We used to use another local wine making shop. There is no comparison. We can be in and out in a very short time. Another customer commented on being able to order on line, that would be awesome but I doubt regulations would permit it”

– Cheryl C., March 2015

“We have been making wine for over 20 years, starting with kits at home and progressing to crushing our own grapes. We discovered Sandra at Beyond the Grape 10 years ago and we have been making our wine with her ever since. Every batch has turned out perfect and it is always a pleasure to arrive for the bottling as their bottling process is beyond any system we have seen anywhere else, we can be in and out with 2 batches of wine bottled in 1 hour. With their depth of knowledge and commitment to quality Sandra and Micheal have always been a pleasure to deal with. ”

– Gerald & Anke S., March 2015

“BTG wine making is an awesome experience. The product is really good but its the atmosphere and the service at this family business that is exceptional.

Oh, and drinking the wine at the end is fantastic”

– Roger Meloche, March 2015

– Lloyd D. May 2015

“Thanks again for another great 'batch' of wine to enjoy! Two bits of feedback would be: 1) a bit of dust gathering on top of the dishwasher; and 2) the trolleys were a little dusty as well. Cleanliness is very important in this process. We are really loving the wine we have been making, and don't want these two little 'cleanliness' issues to interfere with future interactions.”

– Alexandra R. May 2015
