Pic of 6220


The flavor sensation of biting into a crisp, crunchy green apple, with a pleasant tartness followed by a delicious juicy finish. Natural apple flavors blend perfectly with the lively apple notes that are one of Riesling's delightful trademarks.

Wow Review by Troy
I am an not a wine drinker. My wife loves Riesling. I made this and was like WOW this is really good. The kit was easy to make. She keeps telling me I need to get it again and start making more so we will always have it. So I ordered another kit to keep her happy. (Posted on 1/25/14)
Fantastic Surprise Review by TAMARA
This wine made me very pleased with its delicate and light fruit flavor. I will definately make it again, since its almost gone. Great summer time drink, or anytime for that matter :) (Posted on 3/28/13)
too sweet for a wine drinker. Review by SweetDavio
A little too sweet for a seasoned wine drinker but all of our non wine drinking friends loved it.

1st time try & success Review by dawn2701
This was the first kit I've ever made. It was enjoyed by non-riesling drinkers and wine-appreciators alike. I added a "bit" of honey to it and would add some sort of sugar to bump up the alcohol again. The honey changed the viscosity and flavor just slightly which I liked. Great starter kit in that it doesn't take very long! (Posted on 2/10/12)

Fantastic! Review by Shorty
I am new to making wine and wasn't sure what to expect. The kits are easy to follow and fun to make. I couldn't believe how wonderful it tasted. It is perfect! I will be enjoying this wine with all of my friends all summer long. Will definately make this one again. (Posted on 7/3/11)
Crisp and Clean Review by Ashley
While this Riesling drinks a little thin, the taste is great and the finish is crisp and clean. It would probably be better as a sparkling wine, as another review points out. Severed chilled, it is a great warm-weather wine that is sure to delight! (Posted on 2/21/11)
A Little Watery Review by Munchman
I've been making wine for a little over a year with real fruit. I bought this as my first kit because my wife is a big fan of sour apple. It was pretty easy. The flavor was OK but I found it to be a bit too watery. Both my wife and I also thought it was a little weak. If I make it again I'll add a pound of corn sugar to bring the alcohol content up. It did finish off really clear though. (Posted on 1/23/11)
Excellent with Carmel Extract Review by Wildman Jack
I've been making this kit for 5 years. It's excellent every time!!!

Try adding a teaspoon of carmel extract from Starbucks. I takes on the flavor and aroma of candied apples. To die for! (Posted on 1/1/11)
A highly recommended starter Review by Matt
This was the first wine kit I attempted making and it turned out excellent! I purposely chose a kit that would be on the sweet side for my first and this kit did not disappoint. Just know ahead of time that it is rather sweet and that green apple flavor, while noticeable, is not overpowering. (Posted on 12/9/10)
