Kit Wines by Year

updated 12/07/2023

The following table lists the kit wines I’ve made since 1996.

I include grape concentrates in this list, so the only real difference between a kit and a concentrate is packaging. Kits typically contain all consumables necessary to make wine, e.g., yeast, oak, fining agents, sulfite, etc. A concentrate is simply a container of concentrated grape pulp/juice, and all consumables must be purchased separately. The core of both is a package of grape concentrate/fruit.

Note: The wines in this list are in reverse chronological order. Clickable links navigate to the wine making associated log.

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