Wine Making from Wine Juice


Once you have selected the wine you wish to make, your wine making begins (that same day) the wine juice specific for your selected wine. Our wine kits include wine juices from every major wine growing region in the world – Italy, France, US, Australia, Spain, Argentina, Germany, Chile and South Africa. And since our tasting samples were made from the same wine juice as your wine will be – your finished wine will be virtually identical to the wine sample you tasted and loved. Please do not think of these wines as similar to the wine your grandfather may have made in the basement or garage – come taste for yourself – these are truly great wines. Even though your wine making starts with wine juice, most of our Red Wines include the addition of grape skins so your finished wine has all the character and complexity as if made from grapes.

Wine Making in Small Batches


Your wine making would be done in a batch of 6 gallons, which is considered “small batch” wine making. Your small batch wine will yield 28 full size bottles of your selected wine. While 28 bottles of wine may seem like a lot – please consider this. How many bottles of wine do you drink each week? If the answer is 2-3 bottles per week like most wine lovers – 28 bottles is only a 2-3 month supply.

Great Wine – Great Price – Share a Batch


And for $10 – $15 per bottle, depending on the wine you select, you will be taking home a wine which easily exceeds a wine you could purchase at the same price. Plus, you will have the fun, experience and pride of personally making your own great wine – finished off with your own custom bottle label using a favorite photo, image or anything else, which we help you design, and best of all its included in the price. But also, if 28 bottles is more wine than you’d like to take home at one time, you can share the batch (and the cost) with friends. There’s no extra charge for sharing a batch.
