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.


Save Thousands By Making Your Own Wine

How much $$ could YOU be saving?

How much money could YOU save?

[The above figures are all calculated on your wine wine costing $1 per bottle to make.  The actual cost may be less or more depending on how much you spend on fruit and sugar and whether you buy your ingredients in bulk (much cheaper) or in a kit (more expensive, but more convenient)].

We all know it's hard to get by living on a budget; particularly if you are doing without those small luxuries that make life pleasurable.  For many of us (including this winemaker!) being able to enjoy a glass of wine is one of those luxuries; not so much though, if you're feeling guilty about blowing the household budget.

When you make your own wine, you can enjoy having a drink knowing that it has cost you next to nothing.

Now you don't need to spend ages searching out cheap wine - you can enjoy your own wine which you made for the fraction of what even the cheapest supermarket wine will cost you.
