What is it?
Beaverdale Pinot Grigio is a premium quality wine kit which requires no added sugar (all of the sugar content is contained within the grape juice). Everything you need to make this wine is included with the kit except water. The wine can be drunk young, but unlike some 3-week wine kits, it will continue to mature if you are patient.

The Beaverdale range is very popular and is amongst the highest quality 5-gallon wine kits available on the market.
