The Home Winemaking Page

Welcome to The Home Winemaking Page!

This page is all about winemaking at your own home. I consider home winemaking as a very rewarding hobby and I started this winemaking page to share it with you. If you read all the info, you should be able to successfully produce your own batch of wine.
Every winemaker has a different view on winemaking. As your winemaking skills evolve, you'll start combining methods and views from others and eventually you'll create your own. That's why the following reflects my view on home winemaking.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
Enjoy the winemaking hobby!
Michiel Pesgens.
