From the moment I walked through the door I was made feel like I was a long time customer. Wendy Warkman the owner and operator of this business is very knowledgable and so helpful, she helped me make a choice that fit my tastes and my budget. The store was very clean and organized, a well run business. A great experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend Sippers Wine Making. -Kari Searle


I’m from Calgary, Alberta and have always enjoyed my visits to Kamloops. Sippers, for as long as I can remember, has always been a must stop and purchase location for numerous reasons. Not only have their products been oustanding but the professionalism, cleanliness, humour and the welcome always received has been a highlight of our vacations. First class wine making and quality. Is it eleven oclock yet?

I have been making wine with Wendy & Russ since November 2008. What a super couple they are. The shop is very warm and friendly, and absolutely spotless. They carry an amazing array of gift ideas and things to make the wine experience the best! If you’re having a bad day, drop in and put on a batch of wine. What could be better?

Wendy is amazingly helpful and friendly. I made some wine for my wife that Wendy helped me pick out. She has a great knowledge that allowed me to pick out just the right wine. My wife just loves it. I got to have some great laughs with these folks. Highly recomment them for their product, knowledge and service.

I have known Russ & Wendy before they opened Sippers Winemaking and both came to the business with a “do it right” attitude. Even on bad days a visit to the wine shop and Wendy’s smile will pick your day up. Both have time to explain the operation from start to finish. They will start with the need to keep your bottles in top condition, then preparing your wine so it is the “right wine” for you when you want to drink it. Of course they will explain the differences between various types of wines available. In addition, if you are a person who likes to “dabble” in the art of making it a home, whether from kits or from your own fruit or juice they are always willing to explain what may be a problem in the process.

I was a first time wine maker at a hobby wine making shop and I picked Sippers because when I first entered the store I was blown away by the super waxed floors and the layout. I felt at home instantly and by the time I was finished I felt I was part of the family. It is always great to go in to the shop to see what is new and what is happening with everyone. Just watching Wendy “multi-task” was a pleasure to see! As a result of my first experience in making wine I now put on a couple of batches of wine a year and get entertained.

Whenever I’m ready to start a new batch of wine, Wendy is so knowledgeable about what will suit my taste. And I always look forward to bottling time – so much fun! I’ve never had this kind of experience at any other winemaker. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
