Your Private Label

Enquiries are already rolling in, so I decided to also share this with you.

The past few summers, many clients brought in some of their own fruit to combine with a kit.

It works as follows: bring one or two pounds of fruit when you are going to start a wine, for instance berries and preferably deep frozen, that we add to the juice of a wine kit during the fermentation process. The result is a unique, deliciously rich wine with extra long finales, beautiful taste and aroma.

You could also bring in your own juice from your own freshly picked fruit.

Before doing so, and to see which juices or fresh fruit and wine combinations will result in an enjoyable result, please hop in for some guidelines and suggestions. A unique and exciting experience.

Valroza Italy (Valpolicella) 10% off the kit:

An unoaked, light to medium bodied, wine. Typical Italian with a proper alcohol level of 13%. The Valroza is accessible and generous. The wine delivers and emphatic bouquet of dark cherries and a hint of anise. It doesn’t skimp on the flavour either, with its elegant balance of silky tannins and a lengthy finish. The Valroza is well known as a crowd pleaser and recommended for any occasion. No extensive aging required.

Riesling 10% off the kit:

Here we have another winner. A versatile well-balanced white wine that deserves a place on all wine lists and in all wine collections. Many different styles are being produced often depending on the region of production from dry to really sweet. My preference lies in a dryer version of the Riesling. Our Riesling is one that is moderately dry with a refreshing bouquet of honey and tropical flowers with a pleasant balance in its acids. It has a clean, crisp finish and it is a perfect wine by the glass on the deck but is the perfect company at your picnic as it pairs well with food.

White or Red Wine.

What was the story again about how white and red wines are made?
First, it is good to realize that there are over 10.000 varieties of grapes used to produce wine. Just a handful of these has red flesh whereas most of the grapes have flesh that is light greenish coloured.
White wine can be made with either white or red grapes. The major difference between white and red wine is that white wines are fermented without the grape skins. For red wine, it is during the early stage of the fermentation process that the wine extracts its colour from the exposed grape skins. After a few days, depending on the desired wine style, the skins are removed from the fermentation process. Et voilà.
