The Winexpert Quality Story: “From Vineyard to Glass”

picture of winemaking vineyardWinexpert’s commitment to excellence, and dedication to delivering the highest quality wine products in the winemaking market, has made us the world’s foremost supplier of premium kits. Our careful sourcing of supply, combined with state-of-the-art processing facilities and stringent quality control procedures continue to set the industry standard.

Our dedication to product excellence began over 20 years ago when we created the first modern winemaking kit. It continues today as we source high quality grape juice and concentrate from the world’s best wine regions. We strive for quality at every level in our operation, seeking to bring the finest these regions have to offer right to our customers’ glass.

Great wine is not made in a factory; it is made in the vineyard, where sunshine, good soil and careful tending make great grapes. We regularly visit with our growers and suppliers, and have stringent quality specifications and standards to ensure that we get the best possible varietals. We are offered many different grape juices and concentrates every year, but we make certain we select only the best available for our kits.

Our commitment to quality doesn’t end there. In our environmentally controlled cellars, our highly trained Quality Assurance Team monitors all our juices and concentrates continuously to ensure that they stay in top condition. With years of experience, our winemakers and Quality Assurance Team follow proven Quality Assurance protocols, to ensure our high standards for consistently producing kits of the highest quality are met – every harvest and every year.

Winexpert operates like a “functional winery” – combining the traditional art of blending for consistency balanced with leading process technology to make the best winemaking products in the industry. This ensures that our wines are delicious and well-balanced, and it explains why wines made with Winexpert kits consistently win the most awards and medals in the North America’s largest amateur winemaking competitions. In fact, they win medals even when competing with wines made from fresh grapes.

From time to time they also support their retailers in hosting evening winemaking education events. These are fun educational evenings that provide you with further knowledge on winemaking, food pairings, or other topics related to the wine-lifestyle.

Wine Storage Tips

Here are some storage tips to ensure top quality wine:

Do:
Store your wine upright for the first 3 to 5 days.
After that, store it on its side in order to keep the cork moist.
Store in a cool, dark place.
Your wine should be stored where the temperature is CONSISTENT… Bright light, movement, and temperature fluctuations can negatively affect the quality of your product.

Do Not:
Do not constantly turn your wine. Red wines will sometimes dust (leave residue on the inside of the bottle). This is normal. Simply decant the product.
Do not store directly on a cement floor. Put a thick piece of wood under your wine storage boxes.
Do not store on heated floors.
