Home Made Grape Wine


1. Seeded or Seedless Grapes – 2 lbs
2. Sugar – 4 lbs
3. Water – 4.5 liters (Boiled and Cooled or you can use distilled water)
4. Active Dry Yeast – 2 tsps
5. Luke Warm Water – 1/2 Cup (for dissolving the yeast)
6. Cinnamon Stick – 1
7. Cloves – 3
8. Sugar – 1/2 Cup (For Caramelizing)

Preparation Method

1. Clean the Ceramic/Glass Jar and allow it to sun dry before using it for making wine.
2. Boil water and allow it to cool completely.
3. Clean and wash the grapes well and remove the stalks.
4. Dissolve yeast in luke warm water and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes so that it rises.
5. Mash the grapes using a wooden spatula or crush the grapes with your hands. Add half the quantity of sugar (2 lbs) to the crushed grapes and mix well.
6. Transfer the crushed grapes and sugar mix to the ceramic/glass jar. Add yeast to the jar.
7. Add cinnamon and cloves. This will give the wine a very nice spicy aroma and flavor.
8. Add boiled and cooled water to the jar.Mix everything well. Keep the jar closed and airtight for 21 days.
9. Stir the mixture with a wooden spatula every day for 21 days. (Some people stir it every alternate day but I stirred it daily :-) )
10. After 21 days, strain the grape pulp mixture into another vessel using a muslin cloth or clean unbleached cotton cloth. Add the remaining 2 lb sugar and mix well. The Wine will be hazy at this stage.
11. Keep it for another 21 days so that the sediments settle down and the wine becomes clear. Strain the mixture again using a muslin cloth without disturbing the sediments. My wine had a light pink color because of the grapes I used.
12. Store the wine in clean dry glass bottles. While serving, pour it carefully without disturbing the sediments. The longer the wine is stored, the better the taste.
13. For coloring the wine, I caramelized sugar and added it to the wine and the wine had a rich golden color

Procedure for Caramelizing Sugar

1. Take a saucepan and add 1/2 cup sugar.
2. Place it on medium heat and keep on stirring continuously till the sugar melts and becomes a dark brown color. Keep scraping down the sides of the pan so that the sugar gets caramelized evenly.
3. Remove from fire and place the pan in ice cool water so the sugar doesn’t get burnt.
4. Add 4-5 tbsps of hot water to this sugar syrup and mix well. Cool and add the syrup to the wine and mix well.
5. The wine will attain a darker color now.
6. For cleaning the pan after use, add water to the pan and bring it to a boil and throw away the solution


* if you live in a moderately hot place like Kerala, wine will ferment quickly and it will be ready in around 21 days.
* Some people add egg whites and wheat kernels for quicker fermentation
