    I have done 4 red 5 gallon kits, they have all been very nice. Both beaverdale and CC in the £39 range..

    Is it worth paying the extra £7 for the Kenridge classic, or even £11 for vintners reserve?

    Its all down to personal taste. I (mostly) like the Beaverdale and CC kits but my staple these days are the KC kits mostly the nebbiolo which is good immediately and excellent after 6 months in storage.

    I'll give it a go for an extra £7.

    No experience of Vintners but I do prefer the Beaverdale to KC. That said, it is not many extra £s to give it a try.

    I got the KC Merlo and have done the beaverdale merlot (that was nice immediately) so will do a (from memory coz I drunk it all) comparison.

    Just finished the KC Pinot Noir. When bottling it tasted very tart, however 3 days later it is perfect. It tastes just like red wine from the shop.
    I've not done any of the cheaper kits, now I'm scared they won't be as good as the KC ones.

    As said before, I can vouch for the Beaverdales.
