What does the best before date mean? Is that when I need to drink it by?

Nope! That’s the date you need to make your wine by. After it’s made your wine is best enjoyed within 6 months if the foil seal hasn’t been removed from the serving bag spigot. Once you’ve removed the foil seal you should drink your wine within 6 weeks.

My box says, “stays fresh for 6 weeks after opening”. What does that mean?

After you’ve made your wine and removed the foil seal on the serving bag spigot you should drink your wine within 6 weeks. If you don’t drink your wine right away and leave the foil seal intact your wine will stay fresh for 6 months.

After my wine is made do I need to wait to drink it?

No way! You can enjoy your wine right away.

I loved making this wine. Can I make more wine at a time than just 4 L?

Absolutely! We also offer larger winemaking kits that make 30 bottles of wine. Check out our sister site Wild Grapes for the full range including a starter equipment kit to take your winemaking to the next level.

My wine kit came with more than one package of oak. Do I add them all?

Yes, please add all packages of oak.  Of course, one great thing about making your wine is being able to customize it.  If you would like your wine to taste less oaky feel free to add less oak or leave it out completely.
