Default Supermarket Juice Wine Recipes and Wurzel's Orange Wine (WOW) .....

Supermarket Juice Wine Recipes and Wurzel's Orange Wine (WOW)

The original orange wine is a bit like Marmite some love it some don't, if you make it and don't like it do not be put off as there are many different juices you can use, Cranberry, Pomegranate and Raspberry based wines are very popular.

Some members are finding their supermarkets are not stocking White grape juice but have Red grape juice, Red grape juice goes well with apple, cranberry, pomegranate or raspberry juice.
Red grape juice does not make red wine it ends up like a shop bought Rosé wine.

In the video below he uses 1 litre of orange juice and 1 litre of white grape juice, this is fine if both juices are 100% juice, supermarket Pomegranate, cranberry and many other juices are less than 50% juice so you need to add two of these to one of 100% grape juice per Demijohn (DJ).

The two videos below show you the ingredients and the method.

Don't take too much notice of the time quoted for clearing as he intended to let it clear naturally (which can take several weeks) if you use KwiK Clear or youngs Clear It it only takes 48 hours.

Some members are finding their supermarkets are not stocking White grape juice but have Red grape juice, Red grape juice goes well with apple, cranberry, pomegranate or raspberry juice.

Good luck.


Part 1 -






Pectolase is used to reduce the risk of pectin hazes.

Glycerine is added to improve mouth feel.

Don't top up until until you have racked (syphoned) to the second DJ and degassed your wine, you need a bit of space when shaking the DJ to get rid of the CO2.

When racking to the second DJ he says it doesn't matter if a little sediment gets through as you will probably be re-racking again, there is no need to rack to a third DJ as your wine will be crystal clear after you have added finings to the second DJ.

Part 2 -




Rosé wine (A forum favourite)

1 litre Red grape juice.

1 litre Apple Juice.

800g Sugar.

1 tsp Tannin or a mug of very strong black tea. (3 bags stirred every couple of minutes as you put the rest of the ingredients together)

1 tsp Yeast (i use youngs super wine yeast compound)

1 tsp Yeast Nutrient.

1 tsp Pectolase.

1 tsp Glycerine.

1 tsp citric acid or juice of one lemon. (optional)

2 L tart cherry juice (which actually had a fair amount of grape and apple when looking at the label)
1 L white grape juice
1 tsp citric acid
1/2 tsp tannin
800g sugar
hock wine yeast
1 tsp pectolase
topped up with water

28/5/2013 Edit to add -

Gave it its first racking this morning, slightly dissapointed as I couldn't taste that much cherry, but other than that it seems like it might turn out to be quite an acceptable rose and who knows, the cherry might come through more once its had a couple of months in the bottle, it was a bit fizzy and young for me to get a proper taste :L anyway I topped it up with more WGJ (resisted temptation to use RGJ) and I expect I'll be bottling it in a week or two

also have one with welchs purple grape and mango but not tried that yet as still in the shed maturing. I have found all the combinations of Tesco juice with grape juice made in the same way are nice but the 2 above have been the best to date.

So my father in law has asked for a dry white wine so I thought 5 litres of a wow variant would be perfect, this is my recipe:

1L of wgj
500ml of apple juice
500ml of co-op orange & pineapple juice (60% oj 40% pineapple)
900g sugar
Mug of Strong tea
1/2 tsp of glycerine
1/2 tsp of bentonite
1 tsp of pectolase
1tsp of yeast nutrient
1tsp of youngs super wine yeast

I forgot to take a sg reading so adding up the sugars:

98g in the oj&pine combined
172g in the wgj
900g of sugar
Total = 1170g divided by 5 = 234 which should give me a reading of around 1.086

Easy red

A gallon to start with. Recipe below. Don't know the sugar content of the RGC but I guess total sugar is about 1100g.

1 Litre Red Grape Juice (Lidl)
1 Litre Cranberry/Raspberry Juice Drink (Lidl)
250g Youngs Red Grape Concentrate
700g Sugar
1 tsp citric acid
tsp tannin
1 tsp Pectolase
1 tsp Nutrient
1 tsp Youngs General Purpose yeast

Dissolve sugar in about a litre of hot water, add all other ingredients, top to about 4 litres with cold water (top to 5 L after initial activity)
SG at 4 litres = 1.100 approximated to 5 litres = 1.090
Add yeast and give a good shake. Started to work within the hour.

Sugar Contents:
Lidl RGJ = 161g
Raspb/Cranb = 126g
Youngs RGC = ???g
Sugar = 700
