I came to The Home Vintner from Wine Kitz and what a change in product.  Having never made a Winexpert product before talking to Paul and Ron, I finally tried one!  After that I was hooked .  I had been making everybody's product - ie Wine Kitz / Vineco / RJ/ Cellarcraft.  Dont be fooled - there is a lot of poor wine out there.  The Home Vintner introduced me to Winexpert's products and now you can say the rest is history.  I am hooked.  The experience and the knowledge you get everytime you walk in the door at 14 St. be it from Ron or Paul himself, or Terry.  Everybody is eager to help you and get you started down a new road.  Winepert and Paul's staff are  winning all the awards in wine making because they know what they are talking about!  Let them get you started!!
