Introducing RJS Mivino – a 3 gallon Craft Wine kit that lets you discover and blend the world’s most popular grape varietals in full or half batches. Blending is considered the highest form of winemaking and with Mivino you will have the pride of creating spectacular wine blends that are uniquely yours. Tasting notes for Mivino Chilean Merlot: A robust bouquet of warm, dark fruit and tobacco leads to elevated aromas of ripe black currants and cherries. Layers of coffee and dark plum notes unfold on the palate while the Genuwine Winery Dried Grape Skins produce soft juicy tannins.
Mivino’s “half batch” kit size provides you with the opportunity to craft a single varietal half batch, or to experiment with a winemaking technique long established in wine regions around the world: blending one or more varieties into a single batch. The goal when blending wines is to combine the unique flavor profiles of different grape varieties to produce a more complex wine that delivers the flavor and aroma characteristics you love. With eight different varietals available, what you craft is up to you. All Mivino kits come with instructions and all necessary ingredients. All you need is regular wine making equipment.

The main goal of blending is to produce a wine that has improved flavor and aroma characteristics compared to each of its individual components. The sum is greater than the parts. The Art of Blending involves evaluating different wine parameters that play an important role in determining wine quality: Acidity, pH, Alcohol, Color, Tannin, Varietal Aroma, Fruitiness, Oak Flavor, and Residual Sugar. Some individual wines you make may be in excess or in deficiency in these parameters. Blending can help correct each parameter to the desired level. The most important part about blending Mivino wines is that it is fun! See utube videos below:
