Making your own wine is satisfying and easy.  As long as you ferment great juice, keep everything sanitary, and give it enough time to age (3 months or more for whites, 6 months or more for reds), you will get great wine.

Here at William’s, we have developed our William’s California Wine Kits with this philosophy in mind. Our Kits include 192 ounces of pure California varietal grape concentrate, condensed at temperatures that never exceed 180 degrees F. from Central Valley wine grapes picked at their ripe peak in the late Summer and early Fall. To complement the varietal juice, specially selected dry wine yeast, oak chips, and nutrient are also included as needed. Unlike many wine kits featuring added sugar, this 192 ounces of pure concentrate is all that is needed (except for the yeast and addtives) to produce 5 gallons (24 bottles) of varietal wine.

The Malbec grape is a relative newcomer to California, and the Malbec grapes for this kit are grown in Lodi. Our California Malbec has a rich body, subtle spiciness, and a full flavor than is very forgiving. Best of all, its forgiving nature means it can taste good even 3 months after it is bottled.

Malbec Kit
Strong bodied and fruity. This wine is bold but not over powering.

Malbec very good
This is the second Williams wine kit that we made, there are a few others waiting to be tasted. It is almost 1 year old. September would be 1 year. It is very very good. We tried it at 6 months and it tasted good but you could tell it still needed some time to sit. Now it is very full flavored and full bodied. We are very impressed with this kit and we will be ordering it again

very nice
I bought this and made it with the slight modification of adding some medium-heavy and heavy french oak in the secondary. Even at bottling time the taste was excellent. I opened another about 3 months after bottling and it was better than most wines I've bought. I am looking forward to holding onto some for a year. (If I can keep it out of sight) Next time I'll be getting two kits.

Just Bottled My First Batch
I just bottled my first batch of Malbec. It was in the secondary fermenter for three months. Specific Gravity was right where it should be. I sampled the wine and it was already great! I will age it in the bottles for 3-4 Months more, but I can already tell that it is going to be great. I recommend this wine kit without any reservations.
