Just finished this, and after only 3 or 4 days, this tastes very good.. it's fairly cheap at the stores and online..

if you like Chianti, try this.. very easy, very resilliant.. a great kit..

Can't wait for this to age a bit.. the tannins come out strong to start but fade quickly...


anyone else tried this recipe?

Vino del Vida is the only wine kit my LHBS carries. (Actually, its not a LHBS, its a feed and tack store that carries wine making items). But its a pretty good kit for the money. I've gone pretty much all fruit now, but for old times sake I bought a Cabernet Shiraz the last time I was in there. It's about 10 days into primary fermentation. I'll rack it this weekend into a carboy, and it'll look good next to my first batch of apfelwine.
