Making Fruit Wines -
Basically there are 2 types of wine making. The traditional method known as Country Wine making which uses fruit, berries and vegetables, the other method using ready prepared kits.
With "Country Wine Making" you will need to supply yourself with the necessary tubs or sachets of yeast, additives and equipment, all of which are available at our shop - The Barrel & Bottle, 4 Victoria Avenue, Bloxwich. These wines take up to a year before they are ready to drink.
