5.0 / 5.015 ReviewsMakes good wineWhile not premium wine, it makes a good easy drinking glass! I mix this with my own grapes, as my small arbor rarely gives me more thsn 30 lbs of grapes. Between the two, 1 can yields me 5 gallons of very smooth drinkable wine. A tip: toast a cupfull of oak chips, and infuse the wine for a week before letting it sit for a last racking and bottling! Salute!August 27, 2018Purchased
4 months agoI use this concentrate to improve my chokecherry and my Valiant grape wine on a 50/50 basis. The result is dependably outstanding.July 30, 2018Purchased

1 year agoCalifornia Concentrate Premium BurgundyI have used the Premium Burgundy concentrate in home wine making for over 20 years, never by itself but always as an addition to garden or wild fruit in wine. Without the concentrate the wild fruit wines end up tasting like "medicine" and garden fruit wines tend to have a superlight taste. Don't forget that with concentrate you don't have to destem/crush/press grapes and you have that much less mess to deal with when seperating the primary pulp from the wine going to the secondary.February 19, 2017Purchased

over 2 years agoJuly 31, 2016Full bodied and dryOne of the better Alexanders concentrates. Its ages well, giving best results after a year. I get better results using an extra can rather than topping off with water and diluting the wineMarch 29, 2014Good by itself or as an enhancerI've made wine using just this concentrate, adjusting for acidity and tannins and it's very good. But its real value is enhancing kits and turning good wine into very good wine.January 10, 2014Full bodied dark red wineIt came out nice and dry with a fruity/nutty flavor. This type of wine works well with the Red Star Pasteur Red dry yeast. Give it at least a year before drinking.November 15, 2013Superior quality ConcentrateIt makes a dry and full bodied wine. This is perfect for filling head space when aging wine without diluting it with water.September 7, 2013

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 6 answersAre the sulfites in this item added or naturally occurring?BEST ANSWER: Since the recipe on the can does not say to add campden tablets prior to fermentation and only add them when bottling I assume the concentrate has sulfite added. Also a recipe book I have says not to add any more sulfite to any concentrate that is labeled "contains sulfites" since that indicates it is fully sulfited from the manufacturer.
