Red Grapes wine

Cooking Time

Preparation Time :20 Min

Cook Time : 10 Min

Total Time : 30 Min

Ingredients

Serves : 6
  • 5 kgs seeded grapes (they have thicker skins and higher juice content and more flavorful which makes a good wine.if you dont get seeded go ahead with seedless. i have used seedless as i didn't find seeded in pune)


  • 3-4 kgs sugars(depends on the sweetness of the grapes. if your grapes are sweet more sugar may makes your wine very sweet)


  • 2 1/2 litre water(boiled and cooled or you can use distilled/purified water)


  • 7 gms instant yeast


  • 50 gms whole wheat

Directions

  • Clean the Ceramic/Glass Jar and allow it to sun dry before using it for making wine.
  • Boil water and allow it to cool completely.
  • Clean and wash the grapes well and remove the stalks and discard any grapes that look rotten.
  • Towel dry the grapes.
  • (If you are using activ dry yeast dissolve yeast in Luke warm water and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes so that it rises.)
  • Mash the grapes using a wooden spatula in order to to yield the juice, pulp and skins which gives the wine its colour.
  • Layer the crushed grapes in the prepared jar along with sugar.A layer of grapes on top of it a layer of sugar, like that make 3-4 layer.
  • Add the whole wheat into the jar.
  • Add the instant or dissolved yeast to the jar.
  • If using cinnamon and cloves, add it to the jar.I haven't used any other flavor which will spoil the natural taste of the wine.
  • Add boiled and cooled water to the jar. Mix everything well.
  • While filling leave between 10 to 15% of head space at the top of the container for the foam that forms during fermentation.
  • Keep the jar closed and airtight for around 21 days.
  • You will notice air bubbles forming on the top when fermentation is taking place.
  • Stir the mixture with a wooden spatula (always stir in one direction) every alternative day for 3-4 weeks. (Minimum 21 days)
  • After 21 days, strain the grape pulp mixture into another vessel using a muslin cloth or a clean cotton cloth.
  • Keep it for another 21 days so that the sediments settle down and the wine becomes clear.
  • Strain the mixture again using a muslin cloth without disturbing the sediments. More straining will makes your wine more clear and sparkle.
  • Store the wine in clean, dry glass bottles.
  • NOTES: While serving, pour it carefully without disturbing the sediments. The longer the wine is stored, the better the taste.( Recommended to store red wine at min 22 C)
