I made 36 gallons of wine last year, a Alicante and Zinfandel mix. This was my first attempt at winemaking. I followed the instructions from a wine book. I racked the wine three times put in the proper chemicals then bottled it over the correct period of time. The wine turned out terrible. There is still sediment and it must have not fermented properly because it still has bubbles. Is there anything that I can do? I'm thinking of emptying all the bottles into my 35 gallon container. Maybe letting it set and rack it again. I don't know what to do because it really doesn't taste good at all. Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Even throw it all out!
