Well, welcome Tina, this is a wonderful place to learn and you'll find the people are very friendly and will give you plenty of good advice.
When you say kit, do you mean an equipment kit or a wine juice kit? Juice kits are an easy way to begin this great hobby ( some will say obsession).
Good luck .. Doug

Hi Tina, great to have you here. Let us know some of the details about your wine kit. Ask away any questions.

Wine making is a blast and basically simple as long as you follow some basic things. Read over the directions and if you have any questions or are confused don't hesitate to ask.

You can search this site for some of your answers and a ton of knowledge.

Welcome!

Another cheesehead! woo hoo!

If you ever get down to the Stevens Point area, Point Brew Supply has some great prices. No affiliation, except that I've purchased from them before. Super nice people. they have a website you can also order from:
http://www.pointbrewsupply.com/index.php

However, I've found their in store prices to be even cheaper on some stuff.
