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.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most popular California varieties, and is ideal for the true red wine lover than can age their wine for 3 years or more. This grape produces a full and rich red wine, with more boldness and dry tannin flavors than Merlot. You can easily age this one for 4 years and have it continually improve.

My go to Cabernet

Review by Danny Beasley on 10/22/2021

This is the wine that ages well and I am proud to share and give away. I have tried the others that are supposed to finish in 30 to 40 days and there is no comparison to the Williams Cabernet. The others are medium body with a higher acid level to compensate for it's short comings. The William's Cabernet is full bodied, well balanced, with just the right amount of oak. It's best aged for a year and I keep enough going to keep me in an ample supply.

Well Worth It

Flavor comes out nicely. I added oak spirals to the aging process to add flavor.

so far the cab kit seems to be excellent. I used other kits but the real test is the taste test and that will come down the road. most kits are the same it's the juice that separates them to early to tell but so far so good!

So far so good!

So we decided to give this a try. Our first experience making wine. Looked at trying to just use grapes but that seemed waaaay too hard. This was just so simple! Mixed it up, followed all the directions & now we wait! So easy, thanks!

Q: What is in the Granulated Oak Pack for the Cabernet Wine kit ? Can oak chips be used? What quantity of ground oak or chips for the 5 gallon? What is the toast? Sorry, several questions. Thanks for being there.

A: This is one ounce of granulated French Oak, medium toast. It settles out in the Primary Fermenter. You can also use 1-2 ounces of oak cubes or chips in the secondary if you like for a more pronounced oak character.
