Making wine in Stardew Valley

Making wine in Stardew Valley is a pretty complex process. It is not readily available if you've only just started playing the game. First and foremost, you should get a Keg - a special container for making Wine. It requires you to have Farming Level 8 and obtain the resources mentioned below:

  • Wood - 30
  • Copper Bar - 1
  • Iron Bar - 1
  • Oak Resin - 1

Once you have collected the required resources, feel free to get any fruit and start making wine. In the list below, you can find all the fruits that can be used for wine in Stardew Valley:

  • Ancient Fruit
  • Apple
  • Apricot
  • Banana
  • Blackberry
  • Blueberry
  • Cactus Fruit
  • Cherry
  • Coconut
  • Cranberries
  • Crystal Fruit
  • Grape
  • Hot Pepper
  • Mango
  • Melon
  • Orange
  • Peach
  • Pineapple
  • Pomegranate
  • Qi Fruit
  • Rhubarb
  • Salmonberry
  • Spice Berry
  • Starfruit
  • Strawberry
  • Wild Plum

Surprisingly, Stardew Valley does not have any limitations on making wine. You can do it even when using Hot Pepper.

The most significant disadvantage of making wine in Stardew Valley is that it takes a lot of time. Once you place a fruit inside the keg, it must brew for 10,000 mins, or around six in-game days, until it transforms into wine.

After this, you can return to the keg and take your wine from it. A single wine costs 3x of fruit base price, which is a small amount for six in-game days. Therefore, you can try to age your wine and make it worth the best of its price.

You must craft a cask using the ingredients below. This item is used to age Beer, Cheese, Goat Cheese, Mead, Pale Ale, and Wine.

  • Wood - 20
  • Hardwood - 1

Even though the recipe is pretty straightforward, crafting the cask requires a final Farmhouse update, making this item available only at the later game’s stages.

And if you have a cask, you can take your wine and age it by placing it inside for some time.

  • Silver Rarity - 14 days (25% Value Increase)
  • Gold Rarity - 28 days (50% Value Increase)
  • Iridium Rarity - 56 days (100% Value Increase)

All three options are balanced. So, ageing your wine depends only on the result you want to get. Place wine inside a cask for 56 days and double your profit if you want to get some good money. But if you lack time, opt for the Silver/Gold rarity.

That’s it with making wine in Stardew Valley. As you can see, it's a great option to help you triple your fruits in price in six in-game days. Wine is a constantly required product on the market, so you will always have someone to buy it! And while you are still here, make sure to check our list of the best mobile games like Stardew Valley.
