Are you a homebrewer interested in expanding your fermentation hobby?  Well, why not jump into winemaking!  Our wine kits are an excellent way to make high quality wine at home, without requiring all of the large equipment that wineries use.  We have dozens to choose from, so no matter what your favorite type of wine, we're certain to have a kit you'll like!

Cellar Craft's Showcase Series red wine kits include a huge 18L of varietal juice and concentrate! Additionally, Cellar Craft is the only kit manufacturer who includes a crushed skin pack made from over 12lb of entirely new, fresh, never-processed skins that come from the same harvest lot as the juice in your kit. These skins have more tannin and flavor to impart in the wine and are 100% true to the varietal that you're making. This unique practice in the wine kit industry may cost a little more to produce, but we think you'll agree that the results are well worth it!

Like other kits on the market, Cellar Craft's Showcase Series red wine kits come with all the ingredients you'll need to make a great wine out of the box. However, we encourage you to also experiment with different yeast strains and oak styles to create a wine that is exactly what you're looking for and truly unique.

While technically ready to bottle and drink in 6 weeks, Cellar Craft recommends aging these wines for 1 year or more to see full development of the wine's character. Choose to age in the carboy if you want the opportunity to play around with acidity and finishing tannins later, or age in the bottle to see what you get straight from the manufacturer. Just be careful - we all know how hard it is to keep your hands off once the wine's in the bottle!

Makes 6 gallons, or 2 cases, of finished wine

Cellar Craft's Description

Yakima Cabernet and Syrah (Shiraz) are often compared to the great wines of Australia, but they are also recognized as having their own, perhaps more sophisticated charm. We agree and suggest that if you enjoy the big, fruity reds from down-under, you will want to discover why there is so much buzz about the powerhouse reds grown in Yakima. A rush of blackberry, plum, cherry and candied orange fragrances followed by flavours of currant, fig, cedar and spice intertwined with a beautiful balance of toasted oaks. Rich, elegant finish. Powerful flavours of fruit start to come together after 2-3 months aging. After 6-12 months the tannins soften and the wine’s elegant charm really starts to reveal itself. Can be cellared for more than 2 years.

Great skin pack
I would definitely buy this kit again, I made 5 at one time, and put them in a 30 gallon barrel. While still a bit early (only 5 months old) this wine is coming along nicely. The skin pack had actual grapes with real seeds, and a considerable amount compared to other kits I’ve made with skin packs. I usually don’t use the mesh bag for the skins, but throw the grapes in with the fermenting concentrate. This requires pressing it out, and I was surprised to see how much it was like pressing out real must.

Great wine
We really like this wine. In fact, we like it so well that we drank almost half of it before it was even six months old, so we made another kit so we would have some bottles to age. Fruit forward but not one-dimensional, easy drinking and good with food.
