BYOB Vintners Does Custom Crush in Seattle
What is custom crush? Custom crush is a service offered by a winery that gives people the opportunity to learn how to make wine without all the hassle. The winery produces and ages wines for an individual/client who pays for the juice, barrels and bottles before it even leaves the cellar. When the wine is ready, it’s professionally bottled for the client including custom labels and cases. This is exactly what BYOB Vintners offers in downtown Seattle.
DIY Wine Making: Skilled Enough to Blend Wine?
Wine makers tell me over and over again how blending the wine is one of the most exciting parts of wine making. This may be easy for them, but is wine blending something that anyone can do? For us wannabe-winemakers out there, BYOB Vintners does the hard part (making, testing, storing & bottling wine) so we can taste, test, and create our own custom wine blends. We didn’t trust Madeline to make the best blend, so we took this idea a step further and decided to hold a wine blending challenge because we won’t settle for mediocre swill!

DIY Wine at BYOB Vinters
BYOB Vintners is in a warehouse that use to be a book bindery, located right on the river next to the Fremont bridge in Seattle, WA. There’s a fine dining restaurant at the facility (aptly named Book Bindery), a tasting room for their in house wine label Almquist Family Cellars and a distilled spirits facility. There is a lot happening over there, but if you go to the facilities BYOB it will all come into perspective immediately BYOB Vintners.
