There is no definate ageing time, it really depends on what your after making for instance you can have a juice wine from start to finish within 8 wks and i'm not talking about Kit wines either as I don't do them.

White fruit wine from traditional method ranges from 6 months to 18 months depending on alcohol content/dryness of the wines.

Red fruit wines again from traditional can take from 1yr up to 2 yrs depending which fermenting method you use.

All vegetable wines should be left to mature for 18 months, once again if its high alcohol then it may be longer.

Some dessert style Tea wines can take up to 3 yrs to reach there potential.

Primary: Nothing at the mo
Secondary :Nothing at the mo
Bulk Ageing : 10 gall Sangiovese,10 gall Crabapple,5 gall Blackberry,Elderberry and sloe,
5 gall Pear, 5 gall Carrot, 5 gall Blackberry,5 gall Tea n Raisin, 5 gall Blackberry,Elderberry and Sloe rose,
3 gall Pineapple,3 gall Apple n Elderflower, 3 gall Beetroot, 1 gall Banana n Ginger,1 gall Parsnip , 1 gall Tea n Raisin, 5 galls Cider, 1 gall Cumberland Brandy, 1 gall Peach, 1 gall Hawthornberry wine.
