4.0 / 5.03 ReviewsVery solid, great for beginnersEasy to make and tastes pretty good at bottling time. I will age the rest, so time will tell how it is with time. For the price, I don't think it can be beat! This was my first 6 gallon kit and I would absolutely recommend it for any new wine makers out there.March 20, 2017Purchased

1 year agoMaybe good for practice, but quality not worth the priceThis wine kit was included with the starter equipment kit I got. It lacks the flavor and boldness I had hoped for. The price is tempting, but when you factor in the shipping cost, you can buy a better quality cheap jug wine from your local wine seller for about the same price per volume, saving you the time and effort of making it yourself---plus you get the 3 or 4 liter jug it came in to reuse for future winemaking.
I made this kit alongside a premium kit (with grape pack) over 5 months ago in my first attempt at home winemaking. After aging, tasting, and comparing, I have to agree with others that you get what you pay for in terms of quality. Having tasted this one first, I thought I must have messed up this wine sometime in the process. I tasted the premium kit wine second and wow, wow, wow, it was incredible.
If you want cheap(er) wine, I say either forgo kits and buy it locally or get your own grapes and make wine from scratch. Otherwise, I recommend going with the premium kits; you'll get a wine that tastes great and that you'll be proud of.November 6, 2017Response from Midwest SuppliesThanks for the review. We are sorry to hear that the Weekday Wine was not the wine for you. While it is intended to be the best wine kit for the price, it is still intended to deliver flavor that you should expect from making wine at home. We will have our Customer Service team reach out to see if we can help further. - TJNovember 7, 2017Todd JStaff

Yes, the Weekday Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, does come with oak chips. Cheers! -Deanna, staffHow is the juice packaged? In a bag? A can?BEST ANSWER: It comes packaged in a plastic bag. Be careful opening the top on the bags. They are hard to open sometimes.Should I make this to 6 gallons---or back off a bit? I don't want the official answer but the real life answer. :)BEST ANSWER: I’ve done one batch at 6 gallons and another I backed off to about 5. I didn’t notice a great difference. I believe the 5 gallon batch may have had a touch more flavor, but not as much as I thought it would. I’ve been making 6 gallon batches now.
