Making home made wine is a fast growing hobby. No wonder, making wine at home has a variety of benefits.

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.

One other reason is that making your own wine can be a lot less expensive than purchasing wine in the store.You can make wine for pennies per bottle. Big difference from the ever increasing prices of commercial wine.

And here’s the best reason: It is just a lot of fun and very gratifying to make your own wine. Making all the preparations including choosing the fruit and or berries to include, what type of yeast to use, and then watching the fermentation take place… it never loosed its excitement.

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.

If you are new at wine making you can get started in a very simple way. No need for fancy equipment or gadgets. You need only a few simple things such as a fermentation vessel, which can be a five gallon bucket, an air lock, and some tubing. Some of these things can probably be found around the house.

Basically, there are three levels of making your own wine.

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

2. Purchasing fruit juices from your local store.

3.Using fresh or frozen fruits and or berries.

Making your very own wine is a satisfying hobby and art. It is pleasing and nourishing to the palate as well.
