Lethbridge Wine & Beer Making Expert -Shelley Doucette

Wine Brew & You “turns beginners into Experts®” in Lethbridge and we’re locally owned and operated. We have over 20 years’ experience and can help you no matter what level of winemaker or brewer you are.

I frequently get asked:

How quickly can I make wine?

Depending on the wine you choose, it will take between 4 and 8 weeks to complete the winemaking process.

Why the difference in time? Higher-end and fuller-bodied kits begin with more grape concentrate, which means that there’s more natural sugar to convert into alcohol, so fermentation takes longer. The directions for these kits also build-in some “aging” time that allows the wine to settle and mellow out before bottling. Since fuller-bodied wines will improve considerably as they age, this extra time helps get a more accurate taste at bottling time than if they were bottled immediately once ready.

Regardless of the method you choose, we recommend aging your wine for best enjoyment. All of our kits produce wines that are drinkable at bottling, but (like many things in life) they’ll continue to improve with age. If you can plan ahead and stash some bottles for the future (1-12 months after bottling), you’ll be glad you did.

Wine Brew & You carries a wide selection of premium wine and beer kits, guaranteed to please the most discriminating connoisseur. We offer award winning kits by Winexpert and Vineco.
