Grocery Store Wine

Grocery Store Wine? Yes! You can make wine at home with ingredients you can find at your local grocery store! The juice, fruit, extras and even yeast can all be purchased at your local store. Bonus tip: If this is your first time or you are new at making homemade wine, please follow the directions and volumes as closely as possible, since everything has a reason, and altering anything can change the outcome of your wine.

What is Wine?

Wine Folly proclaims that Wine is an alcoholic beverage made with the fermented juice of grapes.

Technically, any fruit is capable of being used for wine (i.e., apples, cranberries, plums, etc.), but if it just says “wine” on the label, then it’s made with grapes. (By the way, wine grapes are different than table grapes).

The difference between two popular drinks, wine and beer, is that brewing beer involves fermented grains. Simply, wine is made from fruit, and beer is made from grains. There are exceptions –that push the boundaries of beer,–but that story is for another time. So here is our “How To” video!
