Home Made Grape Wine

Selection Grapes is the most important in preparation of this wine. Red ripe grapes are most preferred ones. You can other varieties of sweet grapes also but red grapes give a nice color and taste better.

  2. Sugar – 2kgs (double the quantity of grapes)
  3. Water – 4.5 liters (Boiled and Cooled water)
  4. Active Dry Yeast – 2 tsp
  5. Luke Warm Water – 1/2 Cup (for dissolving the yeast)
  6. Cinnamon Stick – 1 (optional)
  7. Cloves – 3 (optional)

  1. Clean the Ceramic Jar, wipe it and allow it to sundry before using it for making wine.
  2. Boil water and allow it to cool completely.
  3. Clean and wash the grapes well and remove the stalks.
  4. Dissolve yeast in Luke warm water and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes so that it rises.
  5. Mash the grapes using a wooden spatula or crush the grapes with your hands. Add half the quantity of sugar to the crushed grapes and mix well.
  6. Transfer the crushed grapes and sugar mixture to the ceramic/glass jar. Add the dissolved yeast to the jar.
  7. If using cinnamon and cloves, add it to the jar. This will give the wine a very nice spicy aroma and flavor.
  8. Add boiled and cooled water to the jar. Mix everything well. Keep the jar closed and airtight for around 20 days.
  9. You will notice air bubbles forming on the top when fermentation is taking place.
  10. Stir the mixture with a wooden spatula every day for 20 days.
  11. After 20 days, strain the grape pulp mixture using a muslin cloth. Add the remaining part of the sugar and mix well. The Wine will be cloudy at this stage.
