Making wine requires the right blend of sweetness and tart. The addition of tartaric acid is an important component of finding that balance. Tartaric acid naturally occurs in grapes but many wines benefit from the addition of extra tartaric acid. ESB carries wine making kits that include all of the necessary ingredients and single packs of tartaric acid for winemakers who create their own recipes.
ESB carries a wide variety of wine kits that are designed to create smooth and delicious wines in just four short weeks. Each kit contains all of the necessary additives including top quality grape concentrates and oak finishing additives. The finishing additives will give your wine the flavour that’s associated with aging in barrels for months or years. Whether you are looking for a pinot or cabernet we have the perfect wine kit. Our kits start at $95 and will produce up to 10-12 litres of wine.
ESB also carries all of the equipment you’ll need to make wine in your home. We have several types of demijohns in sizes from 5-20 litres which will accommodate wine batches of almost any size. We also offer corks and corkers so you can bottle your wine to give away as gifts to friends and family. You can also purchase a vinometer that will allow you to get an approximate read of the alcohol level of your wine or beer. If you are looking for a more precise instrument we have refractometers which will provide a more accurate alcohol content reading. Although they are more expensive knowing the alcohol content of your beverage can be useful.
If you have already graduated to mixing your own wine blends we also carry all of the additives you’ll need. Whether you are looking for tartaric acid, citric acid, yeast, yeast nutrient, bentonite, tannisol tablets or any other additive we have you covered. We offer competitive prices and fast shipping methods. ESB carries all the supplies you’ll need to become an expert wine maker even though you may not own a vineyard.
