2012 LE Program

As you know the LE (Limited Edition) Selection wine kit program offers five fantastic special wine kits during the first four months of the year. The Vineyard sells these on a pre-order basis and the January kits are now in stock. From Argentina we have a Malbec/Bondar and a Torrentes, both awesome wines. Although the deadline has past; we did management to source a few extras, so if you missed the order check with us.

How Our Wine Kits Are Made

The Vineyard prides itself on selling only the best. Our wine kits are the BEST . We are so confident you will make great wine that we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee on ALL our products.

From reading the side panels on wine kit boxes, you’ll see that The Vineyard’s Winexpert kits contain concentrate, juice and other winemaking staples like acid and sulphite. However, just how these things came together to make your kit isn’t as obvious. For the most part, about 75% of the methods used to construct wine kits, in the beginning at least, are exactly the methods used in making wine.

To start, Winexpert contracts to purchase grapes from growers by specifying conditions at harvest (acid, pH, brix, and colour), as well as organoleptic qualities (flavour and aroma). These specifications are very rigid, for although the grapes may change radically from harvest to harvest, the kits must maintain very high levels of consistency, so consumers can make repeat purchasing decisions.
