Our Winemaker


As the first Ontario wine brushed across Tara?s lips, she knew the excitement her palette experienced meant one thing -- she needed to work in the wine industry. Tara?s philosophy is that wine should be a complement to life, enjoyed not only with celebration, but, as an everyday pleasure. 

A Brock University alumni, Tara?s degree in Biotechnology focused on understanding and exploring chemistry. She continued to challenge her knowledge and understanding of the chemical world by staying at Brock post-graduation to conduct research and publish on a variety of topics.

This passion for experimentation whet her appetite for a career opportunity, which allowed her to combine this love of science with the art of winemaking. She strives to perfect this art each and everyday.

From her first days at Brew for less in 2007, she has always taken pride in developing flawless creations. She hopes that pride travels with her products, and will inspire a similar sense of accomplishment in those who experience them.

Our Winemaking Philosphy

Brew for less's goal is to provide you, the winemaker with a variety of high quality products that suit your taste.

We believe the winemaking kit process needs to follow traditional winemaking principles while also being able to guarantee you with a highly satisfying winemaking experience and high quality wine every time you use a Brew for less wine kit to make your wine.

This all starts with travelling to grape-growing regions around the world to source and secure high quality grape juices and concentrates that we feel are good enough to use in each wine kit we make.

Our winemaking and product development staff bring a wealth of winemaking experience. In addition to receiving ongoing in-house training, they have degrees in B.Sc Biotechnology.

This experience combined with our dedication to producing a consistent, high quality wine kit, and our satisfaction guarantee, ensures that you are highly satisfied and will be proud to share your wine with friends and family.
