Some of my favorite wine kits come from the Winexpert Eclipse series, because you only need to add 1-gallon of water, it comes with grape skins included, and the juice comes from premier wine regions throughout the world.
We also carry a wide variety of wine yeasts, fruit bases, flavorings, and other additives. I love using the Vintners Best fruit wine bases, because they are all-natural and made with real fruit juice. The Vintners Best recipe is crafted from the same formulations used by commercial wineries.
We also carry all of the essential winemaking equipment you will need to get started. This includes carboys, funnels, strainers, air locks, wine bottles, sanitation items and much more. It is extremely important to pay attention to the details when sanitizing your wine, if you fail to sanitize properly, your wine may become ruined by bacteria.
One of the most important factors when deciding what winemaking equipment you'll need is to determine your winemaking goals.
If you are a beginner and want to make your first batch of wine, you'll probably want to start with the essentials. The essential home winemaking equipment for beginners includes: a fermenting bucket with lid, PET carboy, bottle filler, corker, triple scale hydrometer, cleansing agent, auto-siphon, siphon hose, carboy bung, econo-lock, bottle brush, premium corks, and a stirring tool.
If this sounds like a lot, it can be greatly simplified by purchasing one of our pre-packaged wine making equipment starter kits. This is usually a one-time purchase as the equipment supplied is made to last for years of winemaking.
If you are a more experienced winemaker, you may want to consider equipment that helps improve efficiency and effectiveness. This could include high-end filters, strainers, aerators and more.
Whether you are a beginner or a professional, we have all the home-brew and winemaking supplies you'll need.
