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.

This Chardonnay Kit features grapes grown in Woodbridge, California. Chardonnay, a grape that produces a full-bodied white wine with a hint of buttery softness and full fruit character. This one can taste fully mature at 1 year after bottling, and be very drinkable after 6 months.

Great Kit

Review by Andrew C. on 3/12/2006

Pros: I have been trying to find a Chardonnay that my wife would like for a couple years now with many different kits. I just bottled this wine and it was great even before aging. I think it will be exceptional in a few months.

It's good.

Review by John C. on 7/18/2006

Pros: Solid Chardonnay in taste. Light oak well done. It's not even ripe and it tastes good enough to drink. I think I'll order another. LOL

Cons: The kit only makes five gallons.

What is this stuff?

Was my first reaction to the crystallized sugar in the cans. Not knowing about the canning process, I would have to say - old. But I just moved it from the fermenter to a carboy. Seems ok (will let you know). Just started another, this one just juice (not kit) and it's fine-no crystals. Never had problem with fermentation or taste. When I want it oakier, I add my own, but the buttery, full taste is delicious without. I've been buying the chardonnay for years, always good. Am still curious about the sugar lumps at the bottom, however??

Yummy Chardonnay

Review by Anthony on 2/3/2012

Mine also had crystals, but it didn't effect the kit at all - bottled it about a month ago, and had a glass or two. It was very good! And it will be better in a few months. I can hardly wait....

Yummy Chard

Review by Ryan on 11/25/2012

My beautiful girlfriend turned me onto Chardonnays. She has a palate for 'oaky' Chards and typically spends $20+ a bottle for quality Chardonnays. We decided to try Williams Chardonnay this past winter, and it was in the bottle late April. I did add french oak to the secondary(not included in kit), as I mentioned, she likes an 'oaky' Chard. This wine fermented out great and was VERY tasty sneaking samples as it worked in the fermenter. We regularly opened bottles as it aged and each just kept getting better and better! Very buttery, strong hints of apple, and of course oaky. I just built our second batch today and as fantastic as this Chardonnay is at a young age, we will be buying many more in order to hopefully build a stockpile in hopes of some making it past 1 year. Quality can't go wrong with this one!
