To make wine, you’ll need a Keg. You can craft a Keg using the crafting menu using 30x Wood, 1x Copper Bar, 1x Iron Bar, and 1x Oak Resin. However, the recipe is only unlocked after reaching level 8 on farming skills. Alternatively, you can obtain 1 Keg by completing the Artisan Bundle or the Brewer’s Bundle in the Pantry.

Once you have a Keg, simply interact with it and put fruit inside it for fermentation. After placing the fruit, wait for seven days. This period is the same no matter which fruit you select. After seven days, you’ll have wine, which you can bottle and sell in the market.

It goes without saying the higher quality fruit you use, the better wine you get. The type of fruit you choose will also dictate the price of wine it yields. Needless to say, plant fruit trees or crops that yield fruits with maximum profit margin. If you are wondering about the selling price of each wine, we have listed all the fruits below, along with their wine price range.
