Whether in-game or outside, we all have moments where all we want is to sit back and enjoy a good glass of wine (or grape juice for the children) be it for a celebration or just to relax. And Stardew Valley allows you to do just that because you can concoct your own liquid pixels of wine in the game. Winemaking is also a very profitable business in Stardew Valley should you need the income. Here's a complete guide on how to make wine in Stardew Valley.

How to Make Wine: Getting Started

Before you can start making wine, you'll need to craft kegs. Kegs can be crafted once you reach farming level eight and require the following materials:

  • 30 Wood

  • 1 Copper Bar

  • 1 Iron Bar

  • 1 Oak Resin

Alternatively, you can unlock a keg by completing the Artisan Bundle in the Community Center or choosing the Brewer's Bundle in the remixed Pantry.

Making Wine: A simple process

Once you have kegs, you can begin making wine. Follow these steps:

  1. Place any fruit of your choice into the keg. Different fruits will produce different types of wine.

  2. Wait for seven in-game days for the wine to ferment.

  3. After seven days, collect the wine from the keg.

The fruit will ferment over time, turning into wine. Different fruits will produce different types of wine, each with its own value.

You Can Age Wine in Stardew Valley

For higher-quality wine, consider aging it in a cask. Casks can be found in the cellar of your farmhouse. To age wine, place a bottle of wine into a cask and wait for additional time. While this process takes longer, it can significantly increase the value of the wine, especially if it reaches iridium quality.

Most Profitable Wines

Some fruits yield more valuable wine than others. Here's a list of some of the most profitable wines you can make in Stardew Valley, along with their selling prices:

Some of the most profitable wines in Stardew Valley include:

Tips for Success

  1. Quality Matters: Use high-quality fruit to produce the best wine. Fruits of higher quality result in more valuable wine.

  2. Utilize Casks: Age your wine in casks to increase its quality and value over time. While the aging process requires patience, the payoff can be significant.

  3. Diversify Your Crop: Experiment with different fruit varieties to discover the most profitable options for wine production.

  4. Plan Ahead: Plan your wine production around seasonal fruit availability and aging times to ensure a steady supply of high-quality wine.
