Comparing Wine Kit types

Posted by Serge K on

There are a lot of wine kits to choose from and sometimes it can become overwhelming. It’s all about choosing the wine kit that fits you. At Danny’s we always try to find the best valued products in the industry.

How do you compare wine kits?

  • The body of the wine
  • The supplier itself
  • Aromas, Flavours, and other characteristics of the final product
  • How well the wine ages over time
  • Most important at Danny’s the value

Best wine kits and grapes juices

Wine-Time Elite 4 week kits – Entry Level

This is an entry level wine kit, with a lighter body but still flavorful. It is the cheapest wine kit in the store but don’t let the price fool you. It’s still a good final product. Alcohol: 10 - 11%

Pros:

  • Makes 23L or 30 x 750ml
  • Some customers make 20L batches to make it fuller bodied
  • Best Valued Kit
  • Can be consumed young, ages well 3 months – 1 year
  • Highly concentrated: great to save on shipping costs

Cons:

  • Not attractive packaging
  • You should make sure to add water into the concentrate bag after emptied to get all the concentrate out

Our fresh juices are only available at our location but we take pride in the excellent quality that is the final product (not to mention the great prices).
