If it doesn't bring up the kits, go to www.finevinewines.com

then click on line catalog and do a search for Lambrusco, they have 4 different kits.

The Mosti Mondiale Lambrusco "All Juice Kit" was selected as one of the 100 best for 2011 by WineMaker magazine. Try searching for it on the internet. Apparently this Italian company is having problems working with Americans since I noticed several wine supply stores are discontinuing their line wit a comment about criminal pricing tactics. I have found prices between $100 and $160 for thir 6 gallon juice kits. I think these are also just juice and nothing else, so the vinter has to guess how to make from fresh juice.

I am also looking for a good Lambrusco kit.

Found this site for Lambrusco concentrate or kit. Good price too.

I had to type Lambrusco in search but came right up. It is an American grown but is still a Lambrusco grape.
Only part I have not figured out is how to get the slight bubble when bottling ANY THOUGHTS

I make this regularly. My daughter-in-law really likes it. She usually drinks the Riunite Lambrusco. I really think it is not bad, and it sure doesn't set me back much dough at all. It is a concentrate and the half-gallon makes 5 gallons of wine. You can adjust the sweetness by how much sugar you add, especially if you use something other than champagne yeast. Or yu can use the champagne yeast and it will go good and dry and you can backsweeten. They only charge actual cost of shipping, which isn't much since it's only a half-gallon:

Good Luck!

I thought lambrusco was beer? Or is that lambic? Either way I was wondering what the difference between lambrusco and normal wine is? I have a regular wine making kit, and was wondering what adjustments I would need to make in order to produce lambrusco?

the slight bubble??? you leave headspace in the bottle when you cork, then when you set them on their side there is a bubble in the bottle......I usually leave about a half a corks length of air in my bottles..if you fill them up all the way you will have a mess.

This is my favorite too! I made yooper's grape juice concentrate red "hooch style" wine, and my yeast pooped out early. It's sitting at 1.027 on some oak chips... My plan is to transfer to keg, then carbonate and bottle from keg into beer bottles. I don't want to risk losing too much carbonation by bottling in too large of bottles and not drinking fast enough. The sample so far is very promising. At $15 for 3 gallons, you really can't beat it!
