Winemaking is an ancient art that predates recorded history. There have been many books written on the subject. You can discover some interesting facts about winemaking easily via the internet. Lots of sites will offer free recipes as well as some tips and tricks to making a great bottle of wine.
Wine can be made from almost any kind of fruit, with grapes, of course, being the most common. Today, you are able to make a simple batch of wine within an inexpensive wine making kit. There are kits that contain all of the equipment you need plus yeast, wine additives, and information.
Most of these kits will include a beginner’s winemaking recipe book, a fermenting bucket with a lid, a plastic carboy, designed specifically for fermenting beer & wine, a stopper, 3-piece airlock, triple scale hydrometer, bottle brush, siphon unit, easy-clean no-rinse cleanser, Italian double lever corker, and corks.
Are you unsure which recipe or fruit to begin with? We suggest purchasing a kit that contains all the ingredients for a perfect batch of Merlot, Chablis, or Burgundy wine. These are fairly foolproof and take out the guesswork and are a great starting point for most beginners.
