Fruit Wine Bases

Fruit Wine Bases
20 Flavors (and more to come!) in a simple 1 + 3 concentrate!
With modest effort and financial commitment, you can now easily expand your winery's offerings with GLCC Co. Fruit Wine Bases. Our Fruit Wine Bases are currently available in 20 flavors – and more to come as we expand our range.

Our Fruit Wine Bases are blends of 100% juice concentrates with natural flavors and fermentable sugars (HFCS). This is a 71º Brix concentrate in a simple 1+3 base - add three parts water to yield a 22º Brix fruit wine base that is complete and ready for fermentation - no additional adjustments required - just add yeast. Alternatively you can back-sweeten your own wine with the wine bases to make an excellent fruit wine, or to enhance the flavour of your own product.

This is an ideal solution for those wineries that are looking to expand beyond their current portfolio, allowing you to experiment with new flavors, or unique blends. Offer a seasonal or holiday wine, as well as limited edition runs. Use them as a stand alone wine, or blended with your own product. The natural flavor profiles are outstanding and bring forward lighter notes typically lost during fermentation.

Advantages of 1+3 Fruit Wine Bases

  • Price - GLCC Co. Fruit Wine Bases are much cheaper than blends of straight fruit and sugar, and much less susceptible to seasonal variation. Pricing for these bases can be as low as $18.20 per gallon - or just under $5 per finished gallon.
  • Standard Yields - yields are predictable, consistent and reliable, allowing accurate pricing in advance of production.

  • Availability - products are available year-round, regardless of local crop conditions.

  • Flexibility - create new products that are unique to the occasion.

  • Ease of Production - GLCC Co. Fruit Wine Bases use HFCS, which is much more readily fermentable than sugar, and requires much less filtration. There is no need to adjust flavor or blend or to take additional steps to make a beautiful fruit wine.

  • Commitment - all of our bases are available in 52-gallon steel drums, 52-gallon plastic drums or 5-gallon plastic open head pails. Minimum order size: 5 gallons! Samples available upon request.
