So delicious, I will definitely make this one again!

This was the first red wine kit I made (only the 2nd kit I’ve made in total) since I’m a beginner. The instructions were very easy to follow and I’m very satisfied with the results. I used both packets of oak the kit included. This Cabernet Merlot turned out better than I could have expected which made me SO happy! I tend to drink a LOT of wine which is why I decided to get into making it myself. I was worried I would get sick of drinking the same red all the time since I don’t have a variety yet but honestly I’m down to 1 case now (half way through the 6 gallons) and I’m worried I’m running too low! My only complaint is that now a lot of the store bought wines I used to enjoy either taste cheap, too sweet or too bitter since my expectations have gone up after seeing what I can make at home! Highly recommend if you like a smooth yet strong wine with full body and mouthwatering flavor, this kit from master vintner is just right!

Outstanding, but be patient

The brewing process took 26 days. Instructions provided were mostly followed, except that only the 3 ounce oak chips packet was used (the additional 1 ounce packet was not). The 27 filled bottles were stored in the basement (75o F) for a bit more than four months. Other reviews of this wine suggest that it can be consumed directly after filling the bottles. My experience was different: a sample taken just after bottling was not satisfactory and was quickly discarded.. But after the four months of ageing, a glass of it was outstanding! It’s as good or better than the individual Merlot or Cab Sauv wines that I’ve made previously.

I'll keep ordering!

Midwest is a great source for my wine making needs. They are fast to ship and get me what I need. Good communication and information concerning my orders. I will keep using them for my needs. Thank you.

Table wine

This is a good table wine I keep on hand. Easy to make and have not had any problems. Made it at least 5 times. Great with Italian food and when I grill steaks.

Easy kit, great results

This was the first attempt at making my own wine. The instructions were easy to follow, the ingredients were clearly marked. My friends could not believe wine I made myself tasted so good. Highly recommended.
