Our Most Frequently Asked Ten Questions: #5  Is My Wine Ready to Drink?

All wines benefit when they are allowed to settle down and get some age time. Some wines need more time than others. 

Whites - lighter fruity whites can usually be enjoyed within 2-4 months of bottling. Heavier, drier whites will need approx 6 months before they will be close to drinking.  

Reds - most reds are dry and have no residual sugar. They need the most age time to develop their unique characteristics.  We recommend 6-12 months before opening.  

Sweets - depending on the wine and sweetness level, sweeter wines are usually good to drink within just a few weeks of bottling. 

With all that being said, you are the wine maker and ultimately have the decision to say when your wine tastes the best.
