I come from a family who were wine garagiste for 10 years. As a hobby it can be a heck of a fun thing to do but it is certainly not for the faint hearted.
We made Merlot and Cabernet Souvingnon. All you need is enough capital to buy barrels and the right machines you must require to make wine. You can search for such machines and containers on the internet (google
). You also need a cellar and a big enough area to work on the wine making process.
Making Red wine is not so difficult. You just have to read and do enough research on what and when to do what during the wine making process.
Trust me, you will need a lot of labour so invite lots of friends or people interested to help out. It can turn into one big food and wine party!
