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.

New to winemaking? 

We suggest you peruse our complete winemaking packages and home winemaking recipe before contacting us for advice.  Every person has a different budget and set of requirements so we are not able to tell you what to buy.  The product pages make suggestions about minimum requirements for equipment and ingredients and best yeast to start with.
