Make Wine All the Time
Confession #1: We were wrong about wine. Turns out, it’s not just “a waste of perfectly adequate whiskey barrels.” It’s actually pretty good.
Confession #2: We don’t know how to explain that drinking it makes us feel like sophisticated grown-ups and giggly schoolkids at the exact same time, so we just use words like “opulent” and “austere” and hope nobody asks any follow-up questions.
Confession #3: The only reason we’re confessing all this publicly is because we’re a little loose-lipped from drinking wine all day. See Confession #1.
Confession #4: We learned firsthand that there’s a lot more to making your own wine than just stomping on grapes and not cleaning up the mess for a month. Who knew? Well, the genius fermenters at Craft A Brew know, and that’s why we’re trusting them to supply the expert equipment and education for making deep, full-bodied, small batch wine at home.
- This glass carboy makes one gallon of wine at a time. That’s approximately five 750 mL bottles, which can last over two weeks of dinners or two episodes of The Bachelor.
- The kit features vineyard-pressed cabernet sauvignon juice with yeast, oak, and select additives. It’ll smell like his kitchen moved to Napa Valley.
- The included Guide to Making Wine is easy to follow, even if he’s spent the day making wine disappear.

Man crates not in crate
Wow!! How disappointing! I ordered this for my husband for father's day, he even hinted to wanting it because of the fun of the crate. How embarrassing and disappointing toboth of us to open this and there be NO CRATE! I would have just ordered a wine making kit on Amazon... how does a website called MAN CRATE have items not in a crate??? Thanks for ruining my surprise for my husband... :(

FANTASTIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT!
Sent it for Father's day to a dad that is VERY hard to please. When he called to thank me he sounded like a gitty school boy who couldn't wait to get this project started. He always loves drinking LOTS of wine...now he can't wait to try to make it. Guess we will find out in 2 weeks how it taste...fingers crossed.

I expected this gift to come in a crate! That’s half of the fun of ordering from Man Crates. Read the entire description. Very deceiving!

Wine making kit no crate
I’m very disappointed I bought a man crate for my dad’s Nd it wasn’t I. A crate. I spent all the money for a th mean crate name and expecting it to come in a crate and it came in a box. Very disappointing.
Man Crates Response: I am so sorry to hear you are disappointed that your order did not come in a crate. We do have quite a few items that we sell which do not come in crates. The crates are the base of our brand and excellent gifts. However, we choose not to limit such glorious gift-giving to just wooden boxes. We offer other legendary gifts such as our: fresh-from-the-front-lines Ammo Cans, or our insanely-delicious JerkyGrams, and most recently our line of (If-You Want-Something-Done-Right-You-Have-To-) DIY project kits.
We do try our best to make it clear that certain items do not come in crates. Repeatedly on the site we make mention of this, specifically under the "add to cart" button on each product description page, in the "How It ships" section, we have written that it ships "In an awesome cardboard box" (as opposed to one of our namesake crates) as well as including a picture of how the item ships. This info is repeated once the item is added to the shopping cart as well, before you begin processing your order. Sorry if you missed any or all of these signals in all of the gift-ordering excitement, we've done our best to try and give that heads up.
The bottom line is, we're not happy until you're happy. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to turn this around! Feel free to give us a call at 866-902-7260 or reply to this email. Have a good one!
