Kit Wines by Year

Fall 2018 Production

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.
