William's California Wine Concentrates are made from 100% Central Valley varietal wine grapes, picked at their peak and gently concentrated with minimum heat (never exceeding 180 degrees F.) under vacuum to 68 Brix. Sugar has not been added, nor is sugar needed to make 3 gallons of full-bodied varietal wine.

The 116 ounces of concentrate included in each pack is enough to make 5 gallons of wine with an alcohol content of 12 to 13%. Contains sulfiltes, so you do not need to add them before fermentation. Our California Wine Concentrates are also acid balanced, so you do not need to add acid or do an acid titration test (unless you want to).

Merlot is a full-flavored red grape, perhaps the most popular of red wine grapes. A bit less tannin and boldness than Cabernet.

Note: This includes concentrate only, and does not include yeast, oak, or other additives that may be needed to ferment 3 gallons of wine. For complete wine kits, see our William's California Wine Kits .

Good Concentrate

Review by Jim on 11/4/2021

I previously made wine from this concentrate. Now I mainly use it to increase the brix on fruit from my backyard vineyard, in which I occasionally have trouble getting the fruit ripe. Good stuff.

Award Winning Merlot

The wine I made using this concentrate turned out excellent. I entered it in the recent Santa Clara County Fair Wine Competition and received a Gold medal!

Q: How does this create alcohol if you don't add sugar before fermentation? Do you have instructions how to make wine from your # G90 product?

A: There is plenty of fermentable sugar in the grape juice, so there is no need to add any additional sugar to the hydrated grape juice concentrate. You can get wine making instructions from our 3 gallon Merlot kit page. Just search for K80 and download the K80 instructions PDF at the bottom of the description for the kit.
