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.

Oxidized Mess

Review by D. Hanson on 10/29/2021

Like everyone else who made this wine this year, it is a brown oxidized mess. Looks like apple cider. Unfortunately I got two of these kits for Xmas last year. Will buy elsewhere from now on

Viognier

Review by Ken Miller on 10/29/2021

I started this kit in May of 2021. In June I completed the stabilization and clarification steps but the wine did not clear. I waited until September to see if it would clear on its own. It did not. I repeated the clarification process and it cleared up nicely. Based on taste tests in October, it looks like it will become a very nice wine but with a very high alcohol content (around 15% ABV). I plan to taste again in January 2022 and bottle then if appropriate.

Oxidized Must

Review by Mark on 10/28/2021

Viognier must should be a light straw color and it arrived much darker than that, suggesting it didn’t travel well to Wisconsin or it was mishandled somewhere during production or handling. I decided to proceed anyway and followed the directions. When secondary fermentation was complete and a sample was pulled the oxidation was beyond obvious both in smell and taste. Ended up dumping the entire batch

Smells good- its an orange wine though

Review by Matthew Barnes on 5/4/2020

Ordered 3 of these, in secondary on my first so havent tasted. Surprised its an orange wine. Did the grapes sit on the skins or was this user error?

Way easier than stemming, seeding, crushing.

This is great and simple solution to growing your own grapes. Williams is an outstanding supplier.
