This is true, I’m a professional winemaker and I tried one of the frozen juice buckets just to experiment and see if in my opinion they are worth it. Found a company that had Carignan and for like $130 a bucket and I bought one and made it and thawed it and let it rip with nutrients and the same enzymes and yeast I always use and the results were quite good the grapes were good quality and the wine has the benefit of the freezing process effectively cold soaking it much better color. I feel that while expensive they are a good option for those of us who don’t have fresh grapes or want to produce good wine out of season.
I feel like the juice buckets are leaps and bounds better than most kit wine.
i also like the fact that you can buy buckets from very specific regions or even from certain vineyards.
