WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN A KIT IS DISCONTINUED?

Periodically, suppliers freshen up kit lines by adding new releases that follow market trends. At the same time, they periodically retire kits, sometimes highly popular ones. There are 10 wine kits that are being discontinued.

  • Vintner's Reserve Angel Blanco
  • Vintner's Reserve Coastal White
  • Vintner's Reserve Blush
  • Selection Liebfraumilch Style
  • Selection Pinot Noir
  • Selection Piesporter Style
  • Selection California White Merlot
  • Selection Australian Petit Verdot with Grapeskins
  • Selection South Africa Pinotage
  • Selection Chile Sauvignon Blanc.


When a kit is discontinued, it means that it is still available to be ordered until it is gone from  the warehouse. There will be no further production runs for these products. We wanted to give our customers the opportunity to refresh their cellar with some of these favourites before they are gone. Although we do not know how long stock will remain, please contact us to order and tag any of these kits you may wish to try or replenish! If you have tried Liebfraumilch or Piesporter in the 10L VR sized kit, this is the last opportunity to try them in the 16L sized kits.
