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.
Viognier is originally a French grape, now grown in Lodi California. The warmth of Lodi summers helps fully develop the Viognier grape, which has hints of apricots, peaches and honey in the finish. Other flavor notes you might detect are citrus and light jasmin, honeysuckle, stone fruit, with hints of vanilla, pear, and guava fruit. This kit does not include oak, for a pure grape Viognier wine.
