I thought this was super fun to do with my boyfriend! We look forward to the next set of tasks every couple weeks! The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because the instructions can be hard to interpret sometimes. We had to re read things over to make sure we were doing it correctly. Also The little packets can be hard to keep track off and for the weeks this process takes. We either lost one or accidentally used it before we were suppose to. It would be awesome if the packets of stuff were coded with which week they should be used. Overall we have had a blast and cant wait to see how the wine actually turns out. Fingers crossed!!
Wonderful, step by step instructions. Very easy to follow. Worth every bit of time you have to wait for the final product to clarify. Delicious, Merlot that pairs with just about everything. We now always have wine on hand for guests and for when we cant get to the store to buy some! Thank yall! Trying out the seltzer next! Wish me luck!!
Loved my merlot! Great tasty mellow and a little dry. Super delicious. Will be trying other wines soon!
A translation of instructions to Spanish is needed.
I got this as a birthday gift for my wino father. It seems super cool! Even if the wine doesn’t turn out great it’s a fun new way to experience wine and make something together. The only downside was that shipping took a long time and I had to contact them inquiring about delivery dates. After my initial contact however they communicated quickly and politely and my order was shipped the next morning!
