Sparkling Wine Making Kit
- Free Shipping
- Online Only
Make your favorite wines sparkle with the time-honored French method used to make fine Champagnes. Known as secondary fermentation, this traditional technique is easy to master with our sparkling wine kit. Just choose your base wine, from Chardonnay or pinot noir to a delicate rosé—the kit includes everything else you'll need. Simply pour wine into Champagne bottles, blend with a proofed batch of tirage (yeast starter), then cork the bottles, fasten the wire hoods and affix the temperature strips. In just four to eight weeks, you'll be enjoying your own homemade sparkling wine—perfect for sharing at seasonal celebrations.
