4.8 / 5.010 ReviewsBlackberry BlastThis kit had everything needed for making wine (except for spring water). I finished up with 29 bottles of very flavorful blackberry wine that will be enjoyed this summer. It tastes much better than the wine sold at stores. I will also be giving some bottles away as gifts to family and friends.April 29, 2019Purchased

1 year agoOrchard Breezin' Blackberry BlasIt is still clarifying. However, considering the sneak taste I took when racking it, It will be even better than the Acai Raspberry Rapture!November 10, 2017Purchased
1 year agoThis was the first time I've ever tried making wine. It turned out pretty good. I think next time I will try it with less water. Maybe it will help to raise the alcohol content and make it sweeter in the end.April 7, 2017Purchased

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 14 answersIs it necessary to filter this wine?BEST ANSWER: The raspberry flavoring is added after the wine has been clarified and racked into a clean container. The flavoring is a clear syrup that dissolves completely and so a filtering after adding is not necessary.What's the shelf-life of this style wine?BEST ANSWER: Because of the strong sweetening, they are meant to be drank fresh, best if consumed within 6-9 months of bottling. Might not notice anything going in it for 12 months.
