Great wine takes a matter of minutes to make, and then only the patience to let it ferment and mature into perfection. Prep a Cabernet for fermentation while you make dinner, or a pinot noir in the minutes before you head for work in the morning.

Our premium recipe kits are made from grapes picked at their prime by expert vintners in world-class vineyards. With this unsurpassed quality, you absolutely cannot make better homemade wine anywhere else.

With small batch sizes you’ll get five bottles per recipe, making it easy to mix and match favorite styles.

This is a good starter kit, but consider getting the 5 gallon slightly more expensive kit. The selection of wine kits in the 5 gallon variety is so much more extensive.

Complex process, results mixed.
One must have patience. Fermentation took a long time. Checking specific gravity with several different testers yielded different results. The auto-siphon worked one time and then not again. Getting from secondary back to primary was accomplished by pouring out of the 1 gallon jug. Bottling was a mess. Stirred for several days to remove carbon dioxide, but the clarifying process made no gains after two weeks, so bottled it anyway.

Green (at bottling day) it tasted okay. Not top shelf, but definitely not something that should be discarded. We'll see what we have in thirty days or so.

Fermenters: NOT using those again. Pitched the auto-siphon in the trash. Next time, if there is to be a next time, I'll use fermenters with taps near the bottom like in my beer brewing equipment.

PS: That metabisulfite sanitizer smells gross. Definitely do not let ANY of that stuff remain on anything that touches the product. Rinse, rinse, rinse. I wonder if Idophor might not be a better choice.

Approximately how many teaspoons of sodium metabisulfite are included?

Approximately how many teaspoons of sodium metabisulfite are included?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2019
does this include the recipe kit as the bigger one does not?
A shopper on May 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Recipe Or Directions usually comes with the juice kit. No instructions in this small kit1
can you make semi dry wine if so what would be a good one?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Master Vintner Malbec juice kit and add 3/4 lbs of sugar. Flavor is awesome with out sugar but it is a dry wine.
Can the 6 gallon kit be used to make smaller (say 3 gallon) batches?
A shopper on Oct 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes...but, you won't find any suppliers offering 3-gallons of juice. You'd have to either halve the juice (and find a way to preserve the remainder) or crush your own grapes until you have the volume of juice you desire. The other issue is that if you're using a 6-gal carboy to ferment 3-gal of juice, all of that extra space in the carboy may result in some unappealing oxidization of your wine.
Can this system be reused to make different types of wine or it’s a one time deal?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The hard components (glassware, plasticware, lids, etc) can be used for a variety of things. The wet components (wine kit) is a one time deal. We use ours in the summer to make large batch sangria, kombucha for our crunchy neighbors, and home brew pilots.
You could use it for saurkraut, I'd bet.
What size qorks are included?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Standard size hope it goes well, bought small kit with juice for wine had to throw it out.
can you make port-style fortified wines with this kit, and if so, what additional items would you recommend?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2017
Does this small batch wine kit use real fresh fruit or do you have to use the concentrate kits?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The small batch wine kits work really well for a new wine maker (I was a brand new wine maker when I bought the small batch kit). I am now using the same equipment to make real fruit wine. There were a few additional items needed to make real fruit wine but they are all rather inexpensive such as the mesh bag for the fruit and different additives.
Are wine bottles included? Where do you pack and store the wine once it's ready?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not included, but head over to a halfway decent restaurant and collect a couple cases of used wine bottles. I asked, and they gladly saved three cases of some really solid ones for me. $0.
Make sure you really spend some effort cleaning them... unless you like making really great vinegar.
Can this kit be used to make fruit wine such as blueberries or plums?
H A on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It very well can be! To make you own fruit wine, you just need a straining bag so you can separate the solid fruit matter from the juice in the fermentor and a number of additives and yeast. Our fruit winemaking kit is designed around making your own fruit wine, and the only thing this kit lacks compared to that one is that bag and the additives. I hope this helps!
how long does it take to make wine from start to finish and be able to drink it
A E on Dec 8, 2015

For this small batch kit, the quickest would be 4 weeks. If the temps are bit cooler it may take longer to ferment.
