I am so tired of buying those expensive concentrate wine kits and looking to step it up to ordering bulk juice for my little wine making basement. Anyone out there know who I can contact for just the juice? Thanks, Jeff

Don't know what bulk quantities you're looking for, but one suggestion would be Kamil Juices. http://www.kamiljuices.com/ European vinifera juice. Expensive to buy and to ship, but I've heard very good quality. Some winemaking stores also sell sterile juice buckets. Beer-Wine.com in Woburn, MA has Mosti Mondiale sterile juice that I believe they will ship (you might be able to find a closer source for the same product).

And there is always the frozen juice/must from M&M Grape in Hartford, CT or the famous Brehm.

Hope that helps!

To get it much cheaper than kits, you would have to order a lot of juice - A group of us in KC ordered some grapes but we had to order in 1000 lb increments and they sold white juice at about $6 to $10 a gallon (depending on grape) but you had to order around 200 gallons - so unless you want that much juice you are probably stuck with kits and getting local fresh juice during harvest time - most other approaches would be more expensive when shipping is considered.

Check out this guy http://www.juicegrape.com/ I don't have experience with him, but he's been on several wine making groups for a while...

Dogtown? Where's that? Near "The Hill"?
I went to Wash U. a few years back.

I've been buying wine concentrates from www.homewinery.com. Each wine concentrate makes a 5 gallon batch of wine. Their prices are very cheap. I bought a Gewurtztraminer, a riesling and a blackberry, the cost with shipping came to approximately $115 for all three wine concentrates.

I just checked out your site and you are right, they do have very good prices on the concentrates. Are any that you have made ready to drink and if so how would you rate there quality as to say against a kit. Wow I cant believe the price. If they are worth while I will be buying several myself.

I bottled the riesling last July and I only have 5 bottles left. This riesling was better than most that I have bought from a winery, everyone that has tasted it loves it and I have some pretty tough critics. I am trying to let these 5 bottles age but it sure is tasty. The blackberry is dynamite, this one I bottled in October and I am determined to let it age before I share with any of my friends but I will probably be dipping into a bottle here and there for myself. The gewurtz is still fermenting but I am expecting to be just has happy with it as I am with the other two.

You may have just a great favor for your retailer of juices. I checked out some of his beer making stuff too. Not too shabby. Maybe Joel can get him/her to be a sponsor here. That should boost things too.
