We love wine and we love making wine.
It can be a bit daunting working out what you like in wine before you start making it.
But assuming, that you already know what you enjoy in terms of wine then you really ought to try your hand at making your own.
Not only will it save you money, but it’s a lot of fun and though you’ll never make the kind of wine that a snotty sommelier recommends from one of these kits – it’s perfectly drinkable all the same.
So, check out our picks for the best wine making kits and see if you can find something to tickle your taste buds.
Best Wine Making Kits
Master Vintner Fresh Harvest One Gallon Small Batch Fruit Wine Making Kit
This is a nice affordable starter kit which includes everything you need to turn fruit, any fruit, into wine.
It’s a great kit for a beginner because of the flexibility around the end product.
We love to turn strawberries into wine but you can use anything you get your hands on, kiwi fruit, for example might be amazing!

Deluxe Wine Making Kit and Durable Wine Kit
This is a very high quality, durable kit that can make up to 6 gallons of wine at a time.
Given that it takes about a month to ferment, that’s probably enough for a glass every evening until the next batch is ready!
You’ll need to occasionally buy new consumables but otherwise, this will last for years.

North Mountain Supply 1 Gallon Wine From Fruit Economy Kit
We found this to be a very easy to use kit that turns any fruit into wine.
We don’t understand why they sell the corking equipment separately, as it’s essential – you will need to buy it.
However, the 30-day hassle free support provided is excellent.

Winemakers Depot 3 Gallon Glass Wine Making Equipment Kit
This is a high-quality wine making kit for those a bit farther down the road of their wine making journey.
You will need to invest in consumables, and they don’t make it clear exactly what you need – so, experience matters (or at the very least, a good wine making book).
But it works brilliantly and is super versatile.

Master Vintner 1 Gallon Wine Making Equipment Starter Kit With Recipe (Cabernet Sauvignon)
More of the same really but this time with Cabernet Sauvignon as the intended output.
We prefer the extra body of this wine but that’s really a matter of personal taste.
Master Vintner kits are always excellent.

If you want to make 160 liters of alcohol at a time – this YUEWO is the way to go.
Of course, in some towns that’s the equivalent of the output of the local brewery but sometimes, you’ve got to use fruit while it’s in season or it’s going to go to waste, right?
