What is it?
On The House is a range of premium quality craft winemaking kits that requires no added sugar (all of the sugar content is contained within the grape juice). These kits are easy to make and even easier to enjoy. 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. This kit will produce around 30 bottles (5 gallon - 22.5 litres) of delicious wine. Simple and straightforward, choose your favourite red, white or blush style and be proud of these easy-drinking everyday house wines.
What is California Red
On The House California Red is a special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Carignane grapes to produce a stunning, light-bodied dry red wine. Crafted to indulge your utmost entertaining needs. California is the largest and most important wine region in the United States. With the location of many vineyards throughout California being situated in valleys and mountains, it offers winegrowers a fantastic choice of terroir. A combination of the area's climate, soil composition and altitude make this the perfect condition for grape-growing.
