Hello everyone,

Any view on the Master Vintner™ Limited Edition 2016: La Vie Cabernet Sauvignon PRE-ORDER? Do you believe it is worth the premium?

I am in-between this one and the Lodi Ranch 11 master vintner kit.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Thanks a lot!

A quick google search took me to Northern Brewer, where you can buy Master Vintner equipment kits and this:

The Eclipse is a high end kit with grape skins that has an established record of producing a good wine. If you shop around, you can get it for significantly less than the MV. I couldn't find any reviews on the MV kits. I'd be inclined to stick with WineXpert.

I was curious, so I did a search which led to It appears that their location is the same as a Northern Brewer shipping warehouse. Tim Vandergrift is featured on the site as having some involvement. Considering that N B was bought by Inbev; they should have the means to start up a new kit company.
