What is it?
On the house are a range of premium quality craft winemaking kits which 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 Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is a French red wine grape variety. The name is derived from the French words meaning pine and black. The pine alludes to the grape variety having tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit.
Pinot Noir is the world's most popular light-bodied red wine. It is loved for its red fruit, cherry and raspberry flavours, flower and spice aromas that are accentuated by a long, smooth finish. Pinot Noir is light to medium-bodied, not too dry but certainly not sweet. This is why it is a favourite all over the world.

What equipment do you need?
This kit contains all the ingredients you’ll need, but you’ll also need the following equipment:
- Food grade plastic fermenter of no less than 25 L capacity
- Syphon kit
- Mixing spoon/paddle
- Sanitiser for the equipment

We also recommend the use of a Vinbrite filter to clear wine to a professional standard.
Pinot Noir pairs well with salmon and other fatty fishes, roasted chicken or pasta dishes. It is well-matched with delicately, flavoured cheeses like Gruyere and Brie.
If you can leave it a few months to mature, the wine will greatly improve
