My wine tastes harsh. What can I do? submitted by Heather B. Montgomery, AL

Since we don’t know more details about your wine, we’ll have to list a few possibilities of why its harsh and what may help it:

It’s young – if your wine hasn’t had much (less than 6 months) ageing time, it may have a harsh taste to it. The best cure is to allow it to age. If you don’t have the patience or time to wait, you can add a few things to help speed up the process.
Oak – by adding oak chips or liquid oak essence to your wine, it will help mellow the taste – it will be less bitter
Glycerin – this will provide a full body to the wine and with give it more mouthfeel.
