Like Most People, Our Carafe Wine Really Improves With Age!


Do you end up drinking your Carafe wine soon after you have bottled it? While our wine is in fact quite "drinkable" right from the day we bring it home from the Carafe Wine store, you just might want to "age" at least some portion of the batch in a cool dark place (with a consistent temperature) for a period of time, and you will be in for a very pleasant surprise. It has been said that most people "improve with age", and although I am not sure about that statement, believe me, our wine certainly does! The process of "aging" our wine (more so the "reds", however the "whites" can also benefit from this) yields some absolutely excellent wine, if stored under the proper conditions for 6 months, 12 months, or even longer.   I have formed a little "wine making group", and most of our members always "age" at least a few of their bottles from each batch, to allow it to "mature" into some very tasty wine, which always turns out to be much better than the day when it was first bottled. Why not form a little "group" or "wine club" of your own consisting of family and close friends where you could share not only the cost, but also, the duties of making the wine, taking care of  getting the bottles clean and ready for bottling day, and finally, actually bottling the wine? With a group such as this, you can make more batches of wine, and also take advantage of the monthly "specials" to fill your "wine cellars" with a variety of very good, yet very affordable wines. That way, when the various holidays and other special occasions roll around, you will always be prepared to entertain company, and be proud to serve them your finest wines without breaking open the piggybank.
