Hello...I made my wine and it's not the forst time. This never happened to me before. The white wine never settled and cleared completely like it usually does. It seems like a bad batch found its way to me. What do you think? Should I discard it? It cost me 120 at costco. Or is there a way to save it? I am afraid to taste it lol

More info needed. How long since you started the fermentation?
Is the fermentation complete?
What temperature is it?

For me, white wine averages 6 months or so to really clear.
And, even if cloudy, it will likely taste great. But you should taste it just to reassure yourself if nothing else.

This is what it looks like , now. I started it 60 days ago. The room is warm but not dark during daytime. Do you think I should filter it? I have always relied on complete settling and clearing before bottling. I have never filtered it. I believe that if you need to filter then it is not ready...I will taste it!
