The wine is in process so I cannot respond to the quality of the product. I can say that the grape bladder fell out of the bottom of the box when I lifted it out of the exterior shipping box. The product box was wine stained at the bottom. Worst of all, however, the product box lacked a hole to support the bladder when the juice is poured into the primary fermenter. I HOPE the juice was not contaminated as part of it hit the cardboard and my hands. Note: I have been buying wine kits for over a decade, so I have a pretty good idea of what is satisfactory. On the brighter side, Northern Brewer came through like a champ in terms of getting it to me on time.
This kit gets better with age. I am pouring my early 2019 bottles and it is comparable to $40 dollar a bottle Italian big reds! Well worth the patience to let it age!
