It is possible to make your own wine just as it is possible to make your own shoes, but most people decide to leave it to a professionals. Wine making can turn out some dubious results including a taste that is heavily alcoholic. Unless you are working with supreme ingredients, specifically cultivated and ripened grapes, and optimal storage environments then your wine will not age as well as those fermented in a commercial winery.
Some factors to consider if you are thinking of making your own wine:
- The background and flavor of the grapes
- The acidity level of the alcohol (between pH 3.3 and 3.6 is said to be optimal)
- Microbiological stability
- Storage in a cool, humid environment
If you are interested in the many different flavors wines can take on, then wine clubs are a great solution to your curiosity.
