Making your own wine is a hobby that is growing quickly. There’s a variety of reasons for this.

First, the information on how to make wine, and recipes for wine making have been easier and easier to obtain. Many books and how to manuals have been published just this past year.

Another reason is that it can be a real cost savings. Everything is getting more expensive these days, and so is wine. Many of our wines are imported, and with the rising fuel costs our favorite wines can become painfully expensive.

But my favorite reason is that it is just plain fun to make your own wine. There is something so gratifying to choose the fruit, choose the recipe and the type of yeast, prepare the must, nurse it, follow the fermentation… all the steps until you can uncork your own proudly made delicious and unique wine.

Home made wine can be a wonderful and one of a kind gift, of course in a beautiful bottle and with your own label. Having friends and family over for wine tastings of various wines you have made is another fun aspect of home wine making.

It is easy to get started even of you have never made wine before. There is no need to purchase expensive equipment or gadgets. You will need a few simple and inexpensive things such as a vessel to do the fermenting in. -that can be a five gallon bucket, and air lock and some tubing to decant the wine with.

There are basically three levels of home wine making.

1. Purchasing a wine kit. Here everything is included, you need only follow the instructions.

2.Making wine from fruit juices.

3. Making wine from fruit and berries.

Home wine making can be quite addictive. Once you have one nice batch of good wine, the imagination can run wild of what you can accomplish.
