But when you're ready...
Learning how to make wine from fresh grapes is the creme de la creme. Right from acquiring your grapes you have complete control over how your wine turns out. In fact the wines you craft here can rival some of the world's best if you pay attention to detail.
You are limited by geography as to what fresh grapes are available though. The grapes are picked at the peak of ripeness so they can only be shipped so far without spoiling. To make superior wines, the grapes you buy must be in perfect condition when they get to you.
You might have a vineyard within a couple hours of your home that you can buy fresh grapes from as well. Check with local wine clubs in your area. Sometimes you can go in on a group buy.
