How about at-home vint/brewing?

When drinking homemade or store-made wines, keep in mind that white wines are basically taste stable, meaning that aging them won’t change the taste very much, whereas red will age beautifully.

If possible, you can: a) allow the wine to age in the bottle for 6-24 months, b) use a decanter if you plan to drink it sooner, or c) when pouring your wine use an aerator such as Vinturi.

Bottle Care

  • The best bottles for home wine-makers are the cork type, as opposed to screw tops. You can use screw tops, but it will void the “Wine Satisfaction Guarantee”
  • Be sure to triple rinse your bottles immediately after use and let them drip dry, a bottle tree can help.
  • Be sure that there are no leftover wine drops in your bottles. This can lead to unwanted mold and nasty microbes
  • We sell a variety of sterilants (Chloriclean, Starsan, etc.) and cleaning tools (brushes)
  • If you want to remove the labels from commercially purchased wine bottles, Windex may help.
  • We sell bottles, corks, labels and shrink tops (to seal your wine)
  • We also sell “Wine on Tap” bags that can hold & dispense your wine in 4L, 5L, 10L and 20L sizes

Always remember that the most important ingredient for home beer & wine making, is patience!
