Challenge Your Home Wine Making Skills with the Pinot Noir

The Pinot Noir is a real wine makers wine

This is not a beginners wine, but if you can master it, you get a velvety smooth red that is among the best of the best. If you’ve been making your own wine for a while and you are looking for a challenge, Castle Rock Homebrew Supply has the tools and the juice to make a Pinot Noir you won’t soon forget.


The Pinot Noir is a complex wine

In Burgundy France, the Pinot Noir is still considered to be the best of the best. It can be pale to deep red in color and possess such complex flavors ranging from fruit to spice to earth to nuttiness. It is silky smooth with a pop of acidity. The better the Pinot Noir, the harder it will be to describe. If you can perfectly balance all of these complex aromas in one harmonious bottle, then you know you have mastered the Pinot Noir.

Making Pinot at Home with Winexpert Wine Kits


If you talk to home winemakers who have taken on the Pinot Noir, more often than not they will tell you that it is finicky. The grape itself was difficult to come by, preferring colder regions to the warmer climates of California. Today, a good Pinot Noir is much easier to come by, and with our Winexpert Wine Kits, you are  sure to get the best product everytime, giving your Pinot Noir a chance to become one for the books. But even with a great starter kit, making an excellent Pinot Noir remains a challenge for everyone.

Once you have completed your Pinot Noir, talk to the staff at Castle Rock Homebrew Supply about oaking your Pinot Noir, letting it age to perfection. A great Pinot Noir should age for at least 4-6 months before serving. But what about Thanksgiving, you ask? You’ll have to wait until next holiday season to impress your friends and family with a gorgeous and refined homemade Pinot Noir. Remember, great wine takes time and patience. But it will be worth it in the end.
