I make wine along with beer. The truth of it is, it is just as labor/time intensive, only with beer it is start time and end time. With wine, there are usually several inbetweens where you have to sanatize and rack or stir or something. Granted bottling is maybe 5 minutes faster because you only have 1/2 the number to cap/cork because the bottles are larger, but total time is about the same.

That's similar to what I got minus the pot and kegging set up for $200. Probably didn't need it all up front, but figured I'd need it eventually anyway.
