Merlot Wine Making Kit

Make delicious Chilean Merlot wherever you live with this all-inclusive kit.

$60.00

Hecho en Casa

Wine making is a simple, natural process. Add yeast to grape juice, let it ferment in a controlled environment, and boom: wine. Yet wine's mystique can make the vintner's art seem out of reach. Consider this kit a pool floaty for the beginner winemaker: It helps you jump in without fear.

The kit includes all the equipment and ingredients you need to make one gallon (approx. five 750ml bottles) of red from Merlot grapes grown in Chile's famous Maipo Valley. Chilean wine has really come into its own in the last few years, and this reputable Merlot is, like most of its varietal, soft and fruity, with a ripe cherry character and spicy notes.

The only challenge will be learning your winespeak, so repeat after us: "My 2017 Mi Castillo Merlot is voluptuous yet weightless, with a tightly wound suppleness, exuberant like the Calbuco volcano, with a finish as long as the Chilean coastline." Assembled in Orlando, Florida. Merlot juice from Maipo Valley, Chile. 14% ABV.
