Made with few ingredients, and ready to drink in a month.


Age all wines one year or more.
  • 24 oz frozen concentrated grape juice
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 package wine yeast
  • water to make 1 gallon

Bring frozen concentrated grape juice to room temperature. Add enough water to make 1 gallon. Dissolve sugar in juice.

Next day, add yeast. Siphon into secondary fermentor (1 gallon jug) and attach airlock (or fit a balloon over the mouth of the jug).

After 30 days, siphon wine off the sediment. The wine is now ready to drink.


Some people use regular bread yeast in this recipe. Bread yeast imparts a distinct yeast flavour on the wine, and does not allow the wine to clear properly. You will get better results with a proper wine yeast.

Try this recipe with any frozen concentrated juice.
