27 March 2020 8.30am: Please assume we are unable to send orders until further notice due to the Covid-19 Lockdown which currently restricts freight services to essential supplies only.

You can still shop! No payment required yet.  Shopping early will prioritise your purchase when we are able to ship again. When you go through the checkout process you will be able to place your order and the only "payment" option is "order now, pay later".

Our unlimited email support for customers continues during the lockdown because we are home-based.  If you did not purchase your products at makewine but require advice you can still purchase advice at our home winemaking advice page and of course browse our how to make wine at home pages for information.  Genuine pre-purchase enquiries are of course welcome.

If you are harvesting fruit you can freeze it for making wine once you are able to access supplies.  If making 5 litre batches we suggest you freeze in 2kg lots.  Most fruit can be frozen whole but do remove any bad spots.

To "pitch" (add it to your wine) your yeast you should rehydrate for 20 minutes first:

  • Use room temperature or luke warm good drinking water (filtered and/or boiled) - 50mls for 5gms yeast.
  • If you are using it add GO-FERM® Protect first.
  • Then add your yeast.
  • Stir gently - it will clump but don't worry about that as it will even out as it rehydrates.
  • Leave to sit for 20 minutes.
  • Make sure your wine is about the same temperature as the yeast when you stir in the yeast.
