We carry Winexpert line of wine kits. These are the varietal grape juice (or a blend). Wine kits are sized to make six gallons. Vintner's Reserve and World Vineyard kits have been improved with more juice to make a more robust wine. Winemakers can make 6 gallons using a 6 gallon glass carboy or a 5 gallon carboy and a 1 gallon jug.
Selection kits have more juice for a richer, more full bodied interpretation of the wine. As always, time in secondary can be extended to go beyond just clarifying the wine. As the wine spends more time in the second carboy it will condition and age. Wines in the carboy won't be drunk (usually!), so when you do finally decide it's time to bottle, you will have more, better tasting wine. That's a wonderful thing!
