Pinot Grigio - Master Vintner Small Batch Wine Recipe Kit
Yield: 1 Gallon (approximately 5 wine bottles)
Light straw tinged with green, this wine up front lemon, grapefruit, and pear notes give way to floral aromas, and the crisp, zesty acidity makes it dance on the palate. Medium -bodied wine, it marries lush drinkability with smooth refinement.
Master Vintner Pinot Grigio makes one gallon of crisp dry white wine scented with citrus and a clean finish that lingers on minerals, white fruits and almonds.
Pair with white fish and light seafood dishes, like sole in buerre blanc or grilled halibut, broiled oysters, or for a zesty treat, ceviche. Pinot Grigio also works with sliced pears and soft cheese (or white stilton!)--or even with calamari on a sunny patio.
Serve cool (52-55F) rather than ice cold, to bring out the citrus and pear aromas, and try it with a splash of soda and a lime wedge for a brilliant spritzer at your next party.

Bought this after making 6 gallons Cabernet Sauvignon. Wanted to experiment with small batch and different wines. Started off slow. Think yeast was old and fermentation was extremely slow at best. Picked up yeast at local store and sprinkled a little along with nutrients. Now were cooking. Followed directions to a tee. End result was actually VERY GOOD. Final rack eliminated all the sediment but really only yielded 4.5 bottles with discarded waste. Not complaining about the volume. I'd rather have clear wine which it was. I also experimented with bottling. 2 bottle as is, 1 bottle with peach extract and 1 bottle with cherry. Alll 4 bottle were excellent. Cant wait to do again
These guys are great. My first try at this kit didn't take off so they sent me a replacement, no charge! I've already pitched the yeast and things are looking good. Thanks Northern!!!
Just bottled this batch of Pinot Grigio...awesome! The process of making the wine is really easy, and you'll get great-tasting wine (so long as you follow the instructions). This is my third Small Batch wine kit that I've made; all have turned out spectacularly. The price point isn't much different than getting a load of the little four packs...but the pride of having made it yourself, the fact that you don'y have a load of bottles of wine that you have to drink or give away before they go bad, and the overall quality make this an outstanding option to a 6-gallon kit.
First time making wine, it worked out better than I had hoped
Fermenting in back room hope it comes out as well as Chardonnay I bought last year
