100 Years of Excellence, 1905-2009

21st Century Winemaking

 

Unlike beer making which was legalised for the UK in 1963, wine making has always been legal and is probably one of the oldest hobbies in existence. The hobby of wine making from kits has developed from wine kits that required sugar during brewing, into a highly sophisticated hobby using top quality kits that contain varietal grape juice concentrates.

WHY IS WINE MAKING SO EASY?

Very simply, because all of the hard work is done by us. We buy only the finest quality concentrated grape juice from Europe which we pasteurise and pack here at South Funkytown.

 

The concept of wine making is simple and, subject to following the straight-forward instructions , the quality is guaranteed. Grande Maison Reserve kits are premium wine kits containing quality European grape juice concentrate and require no sugar during brewing. The result of this is that, to make a wine of supreme quality in the house, all that needs to be done is to put back the water evaporated out by the concentrated juice manufacturer and add the sachets as directed.
