Nope! The primary fermentation would just be getting started in 4 days.

4 days is impossible- fermentation takes a while. I've never heard of a kit you can drink in 7 days, but in theory that could be possible. I don't think it would be very good, but maybe possible. The minimum time for a half way drinkable wine would be 30 days. A better wine would be at least 90 days. Even my Welch's grape juice wine will be around 90 days. A good wine would be at least 6 months, but I have cracked open my rhubarb wine after just 3 months and it was drinkable.

i have made many juice concentrate wines that are drinkable after ~7days. what you could always try is buying some juice concentrate and try to make wine with that. test SG and taste after 4 days. it might be ok... just not very alcoholic. if it isn't ready, let it ferment for a few more days and buy some wine for the party instead

A junior member indeed

However made me think... if buying kits in the UK are duty free... I guess its perfectly legal to sell wine making kits as they contain no alcohol etc to under 18's UK and under 21's USA? How can u stop anyone buying fruit and yeast?
