Let me ask you one question.
I was reading here a lot about content of juice. And I'm a bit confused.
I have bought KenRidge Founder's Kit - 18L white New Zealand Sauvignon.
I do read here that let's say Italian Barolo is from California grapes.
Is this one - KenRidge Founder's Kit - 18L white New Zealand Sauvignon the same?
Is it a real juice from New Zealand?
How it is with other brands like Winexpert? I have made 5 limited edition this year and would like to know if they are just tweaked juices from somewhere else or really from Africa, Australia, Italy ...
How do I know when it is only style of wine and when it is real stuff?
Thanks

Jerry

As I understand it, for the major brands...Vineco, Winexpert, Spagnols, Cellar Craft at least...if the kit name includes a place name then the majority of the juice/concentrate was sourced there. Also beware of the wrod 'style'.

So a New Zealand Sauv Blanc would be sourced in New Zealand. An Italian Barolo would be sourced in Italy. But a 'no place name' Barolo might be sourced anywhere, including a variety of places (eg California, South America, and Italy). Also beware of the word 'style'. 'Italian-style' Barolo can mean anything.

The limited editions (again at least from the majors) are sourced as the advertising says.
