Get into a good sanitizing routine.
There are several methods, but I find it easiest to use a solution of potassium metabisulfite and water. You don't need to wait for it to dry or rinse with water. It's the easiest for me.
Also, use the right wine yeast for the type of wine you are making. Don't rely on wild yeast or use bread yeast.
And finally.... PATIENCE don't rush it.
Make whatever wine you normally enjoy, once it turns out well, you'll want to make it again.
