WINE KIT DETAILS

Your Limited Release Private Reserve Bruno Wine Kit boasts bold cherry, plum and wild berry flavors. Layered with notes of dried herb, vanilla, tobacco and spice, the firm velvety tannins, well-balanced acidity and a long luscious finish complete this wine. Brunello Style from Italy makes a great addition to your cellar.

These kits have been refined by Winexpert to be better in a much smaller package. The juice volume has been reduced from the 18L Size down to 14L. It still produces a 6 Gallon batch (23 L) yielding approximately 28-30 standard 750 ml bottles and includes 30 labels. Your wine kit comes with skins and all the ingredients you need to make your wine.  

  • Sweetness: Dry
  • Body: Full
  • Tasting Notes: Cherry, Tobacco and Vanilla
  • Oak Intensity: Heavy
  • Kit Size: 14L
  • ABV: 14%

Equipment Kits

If your Limited Release Private Reserve Bruno 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 wine kit. 

Equipment Kit includes
- 7.9 Gallon Fermenting Bucket 
- Lid with Grommet
- 6 Gallon Glass Carboy
- Bottle Filler
- Double Level 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 Private Reserve Bruno Wine Kit because you need extra headspace to account for active fermentation. It is good to replace buckets from time because plastic harbors bacteria. Here's a link to our fermenter equipment.

minijet-tubing-34987-97929.jpgHoses

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 Private Reserve Bruno 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.  

corker.pngCorkers

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 Private Reserve Bruno 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 Private Reserve Bruno over a potentially unsanitary and cheap piece of plastic. 

6 gallon carboyCarboys 

Your Private Reserve Bruno 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 Private Reserve Bruno 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 6 or 5 gallon carboy. If you have many different sized vessels, universal bungs might be a more economical option. 

hydrometerHydrometers

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.  

4106-79243-80821-2.jpgCorks

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 Private Reserve Bruno wider corks are preferable.

 mix stirMix Stir

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.
