Immerse yourself in the world of home winemaking with the Classic Chilean Diablo Rojo Wine Kit by Winexpert. This wine kit is a part of Winexpert's classic series, renowned for its quality and consistency. The Chilean Diablo Rojo Wine Kit offers a unique blend of flavors and aromas that will transport your senses to the lush vineyards of Chile.

This winemaking kit produces a wine that is dark purple in color, exuding a rich aroma of blackberry jam, creamy vanilla, and a subtle hint of tobacco. On the palate, it is rich, featuring gently smooth tannins and ripe plum and berry flavors. This character is very much reminiscent of an off-dry Merlot.

The finish of this wine is long and fruit-filled, with the perfect amount of toasty oak. While this wine will certainly improve with aging, it is also perfect for immediate enjoyment. It pairs excellently with robust foods and is also a delight to savor on its own.

So, whether you're an experienced home vintner or just starting out, the Classic Chilean Diablo Rojo Wine Kit by Winexpert is a fantastic choice. It provides an enjoyable and rewarding winemaking experience, allowing you to create a wine with depth, complexity, and a true taste of Chile.

Your kit may appear changed but only on the outside. It has been refined by Winexpert to be better in a smaller package. Your kit has been reduced from 10L to 8L and continues to make a 6 Gallon batch (23 L) yielding approximately 28-30 standard 750 ml bottles.

  • Sweetness: Off dry
  • Body: Medium full
  • Tasting Notes: Black cherry, blueberry & smoky notes
  • Oak Intensity: Heavy
  • Kit Size: 8L
  • ABV: 13%

Equipment KitEquipment Kits

If your Classic Chilean Diablo Wine Kit is your first, equipment kits are a very easy and cost effective way to obtain what you need to get started. Wine kits provide ingredients and instructions but do not provide equipment. The Vintner's Best Deluxe Wine Equipment Kit pictured here has everything you need to make a six gallon batch of wine. This kit is the top of the line and there are other equipment kits you can choose from for your kit. 

Equipment Kit includes
- 7.9 Gallon Fermenting Bucket 
- Lid with Grommet
- 6 Gallon Glass Carboy
- Bottle Filler
- Double Lever Corker
- Triple Scale Hydrometer
- Easy Clean Cleanser
- Auto Siphon w/ siphon hose
- Carboy Bung w/ Airlock
- Corks 30 count
- Plastic Mix Stir that attaches to drill 

fermenter Fermenters

A 7.9 Gallon Fermenter with a grommeted lid is the right vessel to use for your Chilean Diablo Wine Kit because you need extra headspace to account for active fermentation. It is good to replace buckets from time to time because plastic harbors bacteria. Here's a link to our fermenter equipment.

Many people reuse their hoses for far too long. Replacing your hoses often is highly recommended with winemaking. Even if you have good sanitation practices, hoses are particularly difficult to keep clean. You do not want to risk a bacterial contamination in your Chilean Diablo Wine Kit over something that costs very little to replace.

SiphonsSiphons

Auto-siphons are a great luxury item to have in your winemaking equipment. Once you have one you will never go without one again. Don't forget to use a heavy duty sanitizer to clean it since you don't want to replace it often as hoses. A good sanitizer for that job is Five Star San. Like hoses, Siphons are also difficult to keep clean so it is advisable to replace them.

Corking can be a big job especially if you make a lot of wine. Also bigger corkers give you the option to use longer corks which are beneficial if you want to age your Chilean Diablo longer. The Italian Floor Corker pictured here is easy to use and makes corking fun.

AirlocksAirlocks

Airlocks are another inexpensive product that should be periodically replaced. Though it might be easy to assume bacteria is not a concern with airlocks because they do not actually touch your wine, this is not the case. A small increase in temperature could cause your wine to swell and back up into the airlock. It happens often. You don't want to risk losing your Chilean Diablo over a potentially unsanitary and cheap piece of plastic.

6 gallon carboyCarboys 

Your Chilean Diablo Kit is designed to fit a 6 gallon carboy pictured here. Though glass carboys are one of the safest sanitary options for secondary fermentation and bulk aging your wine, they are fragile and break from time to time. If you use glass carboys, a carboy handle or carrier is very advisable. They should not be moved when full without carrying equipment.

6.5 stopperStoppers and Bungs 

Your Chilean Diablo will need to sit in a carboy during secondary fermentation and like airlocks, bungs and stoppers should also be periodically replaced, especially if you make a lot of wine. Stoppers are available drilled for use with airlocks or solid for bulk aging after your wine has fully gassed out. The size 6.5 stopper pictured is made for a 3, 5, 6, and 6.5 gallon glass carboy. If you have many different sized vessels, universal bungs might be a more economical option.

Hydrometers can last a lifetime, if they don't break. If you have suffered the disappointment of breaking your favorite hydrometer you can view them here.

Winemakers always need more corks. Be sure to read the corker requirements of different corks before you make your selection because some cork sizes do not work with all corkers. If you want to age your Chilean Diablo, denser corks are preferable.

You may be using the back of your stirring spoon to Degas your wine but a mix stir is the best way to remove unwanted gasses.
