Home Wine Making

Making wine at home has not been taken very seriously in the past.  When you want a good bottle of wine, you would not choose a homemade wine over your favorite bottle of Vino.  Homemade wine use to taste like fruit juice, or in some cases, fruit juice that has gone bad.  Who wants that?Well, home wine making has really come a long way.  Good wine starter kits are readily available, and they are really pretty good.

The benefits of wine making kits is that you can easily prepare your favorite wine at home.  You can make the wine suit your preferences and taste, and wine produced at home is a lot cheaper than what you pay at your local spirits shop.  Another benefit is that home wine making can be a great hobby that can turn into a passion and possibly a profitable home business, or at the very least you can end up making great gifts for your friends and family.


Merlot is the favorite wine of red wine lovers, but the Orchard Breezin Wine Kits come in a variety of flavors including, Strawberry Riesling, Raspberry White Zinfandel, Cranberry Chianti, and Peach Chardonnay.
Wine making kits include pure grape juice to make sure you have the correct base to get your wine started.  The wine kits also contain enhancers; concentrated grape juice which is crucial to the flavor and aroma of the wine.  And most of the home wine making kits make 6 gallons of wine at a time.


Wine Making Equipment Kit with Chardonnay Ingredient Kit

This Chardonnay Wine Making Kit has it all.  Like most home wine kits it has all the ingredients; 7.5 liters pure varietal juice and juice concentrate, wine yeast, clarifier, stabilizer, oak because it’s Chardonnay, and detailed instructions.  Then it goes many steps further by providing all the equipment; 7.9 gallon plastic wide mouth fermenter with a lid, 6 gallon better bottle plastic carboy with stopper, airlock, hyhdrometer; racking tube with anti-sediment tip, 5 ft flexible tubing; bottle filler, carboy and bottle washer with a faucet adapter, easy double lever corker, 30 wine corks, starter booklet, and sanitizer.  This equipment will last for years, and can produce any flavor of wine you prefer.

Good equipment is essential, because bottling is extremely important to the success of homemade wine.  An inferior bottle could destroy the fermenting process, and it my burst under the pressure fermenting can produce.  Proper storage of your newly bottled wine is also important so the fermentation process can proceed in the proper manner.

The new generation of home wine kits can easily produce good wine.  Professional winemakers have put time and effort into making sure that these home wine kits do not disappoint and deliver a satisfying product, and that the acids, pH and sugars are all properly balanced.

So it’s the perfect time to dive right in and start bottling your own Vino home.

Cheers!

Keep Your Wine Chilled From the Wine Refrigerator to the Table

Wine Refrigerator Reviews

If you think using a wine cooler or wine refrigerator is a waste of time, it’s really not.  Wines taste best when served at the right temperature.  Different wines need different temperatures, and wine coolers are the best way to keep your wines chilled just right and ready to serve.

The best thing about wine coolers these days is that they now come in all different shapes and sizes – some are designed for your tabletop, some for your kitchen counter, and others are full-fledged wine refrigerators.

Tabletop wine coolers are great for keeping wine at the right temperature while you’re serving it – say at parties or picnics.  There’s a limit to how long a tabletop wine cooler will keep your bottle ready to serve, but that’s all you really need at social gatherings.  If it’s a good bottle of wine, it probably won’t last anyway.

The larger wine refrigerators are useful for collectors who don’t have a wine cellar, and are great at keeping wine at designated temperatures.  No one wants to lose a good bottle of wine to humidity or any environmental fluctuations.

With the wide range of wine coolers and wine refrigerators come different functions.  Some wine refrigerators have separate chambers with separate temperature controls so you can store several different kinds of wine all in the same wine refrigerator.

The desires of wine lovers are all over the map, and so are your options when shopping for wine refrigerators and wine coolers.  Even the most hard to please wine connoisseur can find the right wine cooler.  Here’s just a few that I think are great.

 

This is the Cooper Cooler Rapid Beverage Chiller, Brushed-Silver.  It chills any beverage, not just wine, by rotating and spraying the bottle with cold water.  It can chill a bottle of wine from 77 degrees to 43 degrees in minutes.  Awesome – Just Awesome!

 

 

 


This is one of those great tabletop wine coolers.  It’s the Vacu Win Prestige Stainless-Steel Tabletop Wine Cooler.  It can chill your wine in five minutes and keep it chilled for 4 hours.


 

This is for the serious wine connoisseur.  It’s the Haier 18-bottle Dual-Zone Wine Cooler with Touch Screen Controls.  Dual chambers make it perfect for red and white wines.  This is your modern-day wine cellar.

These are just a few of the many, many great wine coolers and wine refrigerators on available today, and quiet frankly, they just keep getting better and better.

Cheers!
