As you will see from the guide below, making wine can be one of the most profitable businesses in Stardew Valley, so you definitely won’t be disappointed!
Here is what you need to know:
How to Make Wine in Stardew Valley?
Before we dive deeper into learning how to age wine in Stardew Valley, players should learn how to make the simple version of the drink too!
To start making wine, you will need:
- 30 Wood
- 1 Copper Bar
- 1 Iron Bar
- 1 Oak Resin
As you can see from the list above, you don’t even need that many things!
Just keep in mind that you will need to reach the 8th level of your farming skill in the game to even start making the wine. If you haven’t reached that yet, simply care for your animals or harvest crops to improve your skills. If you still have some doubts or questions about this skill, you can learn more from the Stardew Valley crops and farming guide!
Once you start working on your wine, you will need to wait at least 6 days until you “harvest” it. You will need just a little bit of patience until you can enjoy all the benefits that this business will bring you!
However, as you can probably guess, there is a way to age it further!
How to Age Your Stardew wine?
So, how can players age wine in Stardew Valley?
Basically, you can put your wine in a cask to age it more and reach silver (aged for 14 days), gold (aged for 28 days) or iridium quality (aged for 56 days)!
That’s how you can get 1.25x or even 1.5x of the original selling price.
If you spend enough time working on your wine, you can even make it 2x of the selling price.
If you’re planning to age your wine, you’d suggest to use fruits that will make the most profitable wine. This way, your selling price will be the highest after you age it in a cask!
Some of our suggestions include:
- Pomegranate wine
- Rhubarb wine
- Melon wine
- Ancient fruit wine
Of course, any type of fruit will be alright. It just depends on how much money you want to make out of this!
Is It Profitable to make Wine in Stardew Valley?
Just like with most Stardew things, you might start thinking if making wine is profitable enough to create a sustainable farm!
Well, we are glad to tell you that making wine can be very profitable! That’s right. No wonder why many players get tons of casks and kegs to make as much wine as possible.
No one will blame you for wanting to make a profit in Stardew Valley, but this is also a great way to have a nice business.
Basically, the easiest way to determine whether your wine will have a high selling price is by seeing what fruit you will use for it. If you don’t age your wine, the selling price will be 3x of the fruit price.
Also, you will get a higher selling price if you are an Artisan by profession. This way, you’ll get 1.4x the price (for example, 140 gold coins instead of 100). Of course, not all players will choose this profession, so you might want to benefit from silver or gold star wine. Just get yourself a cask and learn how to age wine in Stardew Valley.
Other than that, just focus on more expensive fruit (such as pomegranate or rhubarb) to make great wine.
