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 116 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 116 ounces of pure concentrate is all that is needed (except for the yeast and addtives) to produce 3 gallons of varietal wine.

REFRIGERATION REQUIRED: Refrigerate this product upon receipt. Shelf life is 4 weeks after receipt if refrigerated. 

Zinfandel is a grape that yields a deep, complex red wine that matures in a year or two, with a fruitier, softer character than Cabernet. An deep red aromatic wine.

Give it at least eight months

Review by Paula on 12/29/2015

It needs at least eight months to taste really good. Give it a year or more if you can.

Very Good Wine Kit

Review by Chris on 4/12/2013

This is going to be a very good wine in a few more months. This was not my first wine kit but the directions seemed a bit sparse. Buying the 2.5 gallon kit and directions state aging for 3 months in a carboy and I was concerned about oxidation. Did not want to buy 1/2 a gallon of wine to top up the carboy so I left it alone. Tasted fine on bottling but hoping for improved character at about 6 months. Overall you can tell that the Williams concentrate is very good stuff. Will follow up with a 5 gallon batch soon.

Q: Active fermentation appears to have stopped after 6 days in first carboy. Temp has been steady at 65-75. No bubbling or frothing. Is this normal?

A: You will need to take a hydrometer reading today and another in a few days. That will show you if it has finished fermenting. Don't use visual clues to gauge fermentation status.

Q: Does this kit come with any yeast nutrients like Ferm k? If not would you recommend it?

A: It does not come with yeast nutrients as they are not necessary with fresh viable yeast, Having said that, you can never have yeast that is too healthy. I use a yeast nutrient every time I ferment anything.
