Frequently Asked Questions

"Can I make wine that is as good as store bought brands?"

Yes. It may help to allow the wine to age after taking it home.

"Is it expensive?"

Not at all. The prices for our most popular wine kits range from $115 to $180 for 30 bottles. This means you can have a bottle of quality wine for approximately $5.00.

"How long will it take?"

We offer you the choice of 5-week, 7-week and 8-week wine kits. Our 5-week wines are made from the finest blend of grape juice and concentrate. They are usually ready to drink in a few weeks after bottling. Our 7-week wines are made from premium quality grape juice blends. They are fuller bodied and require a longer aging time (at least 2 to 3 months). Our 8-week wine kits, with 100% varietal grape juice from country-specific vineyards, Selection Estate Series has re-defined the quality expectations of the advanced winemaker and the wine kit industry alike.

"What kinds of wines are available?"

Please see our Products page.

"What is the alcohol content?"

The alcohol level in our wines range from 11% to 14.5%.

"Is Winexpert wine kits dry or sweet?"

Our wine menu has sweetness indicators next to the wine names. Most of our wines have a dry finish, but we can adjust the levels to your taste. Just ask.

"What are Tannins?"

Tannin comes from the skins, seeds, and stems of the grapes, and also from wood. It gives wine its longevity and character. Tannin is also found in strong tea.

"What about wine with food?"

The fuller flavoured the food, the more full-bodied the wine should be. A simply prepared chicken can match well with a light bodied white wine. If you add a rich cream sauce, then a medium to full-bodied white may be preferred.

"What about wine with cheese?"

Similar to how milk softens tea, cheese serves to round the tannic tastes of wine. Brie with sparkling wine is a good combination. Blue cheese overpowers most wines except dessert wines.
