Can I Mix Different Wine Concentrates Together?

Alexander's Wine ConcentrateDear Kraus,

I would like to order Alexander’s Sun Country concentrate and blend two of the [ALC106] Zinfandel and one of the [ALC108] Barbera. I have done this with actual grapes but never with concentrate and would like to have your opinion. Using grapes the resulting wine has been rated as equal to a $40.00 bottle.

I know that I can’t have any type of guarantee as to the results, I just want to know if the 2 concentrates can be mixed and the follow the regular homemade wine instructions. I don’t want to order everything needed if you do not recommend mixing them. 

Thank you,
Jerry C.

Dear Jerry,

Yes, you can mix the two different wine concentrates together and then follow the homemade wine instructions for the 3 can recipe that is on our website. There will be no difference in the wine brewing process.

Having said this, one of the wine making tips you may want to consider is to make the two different wine concentrates separately, and then blend them together to taste before bottling.

This is how commercial wineries accomplish various combinations of grapes. Blending in this way gives you ultimate control of the final flavor of the wine. You can vary the ratio of the two as you see fit.

Best Wishes,
Customer Service at E. C. Kraus
