Hey everybody,


I have my very first wine going right now. I have a thread on the MM page. I am having so much fun with it, I think I am ready to start a white.


I need suggestions....


What is the VERY BEST kit for a white wine?


Suggestions please

I did the MM all juice Riesling and it came out great, the cleanest white wine Ive ever had.

Would be hard to say "best" there are several very good ones. The WE Symphony is one we all like here.

The very best white to make is what ever you like to drink. From the smaller kits to the larger kits I have yet to be disappointed in any white kit I've made. Another option is the blush kits - very nice for summer drinking. CC White Shiraz is a hit around here this year as well as the Pacific Quartet (but that was a limited edition, unfortunately).

Goodfella, whatever white wine that is your favorite is probably the "best" white wine for you, IMHO. George has some wonderful whites.

Good answer Waldo. I'll even suggest the Ken Ridge Showcase German Gewurztraminer. We love it.

Cool.... Looking good everybody. I ask for other opinions because, I will most likely share more then I drink.


What about adding a few strawberries? Is that a bad combo


Hey Waldo..... Would you use any oak? Or change this kit at all?

As far as oak goes it depends on what you pick, oak goes well with Chard. but not Gewurtz.
