What About Adding Sulfites to Wine?

We must add sulfites to your wine in order to protect it from spoilage-causing microbes and oxidation.


It must be added, otherwise it will go bad. Wine kits are designed to have 35-50 ppm (parts per million) of Sulfite in the finished wine. This is low compared to commercial wines, which contain up to 70 ppm, or dried fruit like raisins, which can contain up to 250 ppm. This is part of the reason your wine will mature relatively quickly. If all or most of your wine will be aged past 12-18 months, ask us about adding additional sulfite.
