Editor's Notes

March 18, 2020:

Crafting your own wine is an art, and like any piece of art, it begins with the necessary supplies. There are so many kits available to make your own wine, it can be hard to tell the difference between sets or to know which one you need. There are many factors to consider, such as if you are a newbie to brewing wine or a seasoned crafter, what kind of wine you want to make, what equipment you must have, what ingredients and nutrients are necessary, and the list goes on.

The Craft A Brew Cabernet Sauvignon has both the ingredients and equipment to make wine, so it is a good choice for someone taking their first steps into the world of home brewing. If you are experienced at fermenting from home, and you have your own equipment, the Wine Lovers Merlot is an ingredient-only set that creates a delicious, full-bodied wine. If you have your own recipe and ingredients, but lack the equipment, one option might be the Winemakers Depot Set, which includes only equipment.

Once you have successfully crafted homemade wine, you should take a look at our rankings for wine savers to keep the fruits of your labor fresh for days. When it is time to drink your handcrafted creation, our wine pourers will help you savor every last glass without spilling a drop. Finally, when it comes to storing your freshly-fermented beverage, not only will you need bottles, which you can easily find by simply reusing empty bottles on hand, but you also need a place to store those bottles, which is where you might find our wine racks to be useful.
