I had heard that they were discontinuing them and possibly replacing with something else. I agree that they are fun to play around with. I made 2 pretty decent wines from them, a decent Barolo, still aging and Chardonnay. I wanted to get the Barolo again to try some things and I cant get it. I hope that they replace them soon. It seems that there are very few of the cheaper kits on Amazon including reserve du chateau and Chateau classico. I am worried that all the cheap kits are disappearing from Amazon, but I guess I will have to step it up to better kits.
