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.

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.

Wonderful Viognier!

Review by Chris on 6/18/2014

My wife and I just bottled our first batch of Viognier and of course sampled some in the process. It's a beautiful golden color with a fruity aroma. Still a tad sweet but a month or so in the bottle may lessen that a bit. Put one bottle in the fridge to try chilled this weekend. We'll definitely be making another batch soon.

Happy with this wine kit

Very good at 1 month after bottling. Quite a nice wine. Can't wait for 6 or so months to pass. I know it will just keep getting better.

Viognier is the way

Review by Doug French on 10/14/2016

I have made this wine in the past and it has turned out nice. Lately I have been using this wine as base for my fruit wines. Fruit wines on their own can lack some body and depth. I have been mixing one can (2.5 gallons of wine when water is added) of viognier with other fruit based and pureed fruit to make five gallons of fruit wine. The resulting wine has much more character and depth. The viognier helps bring out the fruit flavor and adds additional back end flavors. I can count on williams viognier to have a consistent flavor and quality. My latest is a combination of viognier, 20 pounds of mashed strawberries and some rose petal extract. I can't wait for this one age a tad. Cheers

Absolutely Fantastic

Review by Larry on 4/14/2017

The William's Viognier was the first wine kit I ever made. Before this kit I had never had a Viognier wine. My only regret was I purchased the 3 gallon kit and when the wine reached maturity there were only 2 bottles left. This is another excellent easy to make wine from Williams and one that will always be in my wine stock.

Way easier than stemming, seeding, crushing.
