So you want to make your own wine? Making excellent quality wine is probably easier than you thought. It takes only a few ingredients and in a couple of months, you have a great-tasting wine that you can share with your family and friends.
The actual process of kit wine making lasts 8 weeks or so, but does not include the aging time. We like to remind our customers that patience is recommended! In our experience, Reds need about a year and Whites 8-9 months before reaching that desired taste.
For the richer, spiced, more complex woodier stlyes….the longer any wine ages the better! The Island Mist kits are the only exception to this rule. They are crafted to finish as a wine cooler. But with a little help found under our Frequent Questions Answered tab, we help you kick them up a bit to finish around 10%!
