WinePress.US Introduction to Winemaking DVD for the beginner winemaker
I started getting interested in making wine, I searched the internet
for weeks, trying to see how wine is made and I read books
too. After becoming more educated in winemaking, I
decided to help make the learning curve a lot easier for those
wanting to learn this great hobby. Learning by example to me
is much easier than learning by just reading.
I highly recommend this instructional video for any amateur
getting into home winemaking. Joel Sommer is no stranger
to home winemaking; he is the owner and founder of
WinePress.US, one of the largest winemaking and grape
growing discussion forum on the internet. And now, he has just
released a new instructional video in DVD format for new
winemakers that teaches all the basics from equipment needed to
making wine and filtering and bottling. It includes how to make
wine from a kit, fruit wine from cherries, and wine from grapes.
Joel hosts this video that only runs 1hr 50 mins and so it's an
easy watch with a bottle of wine by your side. And be sure to
watch the Outtakes ... after the bottle of wine!
I'd already read several winemaking books
but purchased this video so I could actually see the process. I
am a visual learner and this video really made me feel
comfortable about taking the plunge into making wine from fresh
grapes. Theres enough of an investment in equipment, materials
and time that it is worth it to really understand what you have
to do to be a successful winemaker. Joel takes you from start to
finish and the methods he demonstrates are specifically
applicable for a home winemaker, even the part where you stick
your arm up to the elbow in red grape must! I definitely
recommend this video for those who are jumping into the
fantastic hobby of winemaking. It pays for itself from just one
batch of your own high quality wine. Lennie
Great coverage of all the basics.
This DVD was really well worth getting. I am not the biggest
reader, so watching a nearly 2 hour long DVD on all the
different points on making wine, kits, grape, fruit wines,
equipment, crushing, destemming, pressing, bottling and more..
It's the cost of a couple books, but you'll watch this again and
again. Very well done. Wineman Dave
