Wines made from Winexpert wine kits have won a total of 2047 medals in the 10 annual WineMaker competitions that have been held so far.

GLOSSARY OF WINE KIT TERMS
A glossary is an alphabetical list of the specialized terms used in a field of knowledge. Kit winemaking is pretty specialized. And even if much of this terminology is obvious or well-known to experienced winemakers, there is still a real benefit to reading glossaries of things you already know. This helps you keep your knowledge sharp. And for first-time or fairly new winemakers, having one place to look for all these terms is useful as a reminder and as reinforcement of new knowledge.
