Default How long to make white wine with welches?

I'm a beer brewer but I'm intrigued by wine-making. I was wondering how long it would take to make a white wine out of welches grape juice? Thanks!

I made a gallon out of the Concord grapes and I was drinking it in 3 months, but got better with another 3 in the bottle. I am starting a batch of white next weekend, or as soon as last night's batch of strawberry gets done fermenting.

You could do it in 30 days or so- but it would be better after 6 months. It would be drinkable (but not very good) in a month or so.

I drink mine as soon as it is done fermenting.... It's pretty crude though

The higher the alcohol content, the longer it SHOULD sit to mellow and allow the flavors to blend.

If you shoot for something in the 1.050 - 1.060 OG range you should get to around 7% - 9% which would have a much quicker juice to glass than if you shot for 1.080 or higher. Then stabilize, backsweeten to 1.005 and enjoy.

Sort of like one of those Island Mist kits.
