Kit Wines by Year

The following table lists the kit wines I’ve been making since 1996. Note that “kit” wines differ (in my mind) from concentrates in that a kit is a complete package for wine making. It contains all the consumables necessary to make wine, e.g., sulfite, fining agent(s), yeast, etc.

Note: The wines in this list are in the order made. Clickable links navigate to the wine making log for the wine clicked. Each log is a separate post that is also reachable by the other lists in this menu, but this is the easiest list to use.

Update: After building all my lists, I decided to move grape concentrates to this list, as it made more sense than listing them under their own heading or “Other”.

Also note that wines marked with a green background are in progress, e.g., have not yet been bottled.
