Our winemaking kits are designed
to help you produce the best wine possible from our Californian
wine concentrates or from your own fresh fruit. We have over 20
years of winemaking experience and also farm a 5 acre vineyard where
we produce wine grapes for our local customers. To make wine you
only have to decide what kind you desire to make, and how much you
want to make. Usually people decide on gallon jugs or multiples
of them, or upon 5 gallon carboys, or as many of them as you want.
From wine concentrates you can have 5 gallons of wine ready to ferment
in 15 minutes after opening the concentrate. From your own fresh
fruit you can have it made in 1-2 hours, depending on the type of
fruit you use. You can be drinking your wine in as little as 5 weeks,
or it may take 6 or more months to have it finished fermenting and
clear enough to bottle.
Wine is ready to drink in 1½ to 6 months
Wine grapes available Sep-Oct 15
Your wine can be as dry or sweet as you like
You can make wine and be ready to add yeast in
