Home wine filters provide a way to improve wine's appearance, make wine more stable and shorten its ageing time. Wine makers can choose between gravity feed and pressurised filtering systems. Gravity feed systems work by siphoning wine into a filtering unit and cost less than pressurised systems, but are slower at filtering and can only perform coarse filtrations. Pressurised filtering systems force wine through filter pads using either motorised or hand pumps and offer finer and faster filtration than gravity feed systems. Filtering systems are available through home wine making companies. Many companies also offer simple filter-pourers for individual bottles of wine.

Vinebrite Wine Filter Kit

This gravity feed system filters up to 2 gallons at a time and requires only basic assembly. The Vinebrite Wine Filter Kit comes with the siphon hose, a hose clamp, clarifying agent, complete instructions and six filtering pads. The system is compatible with Crystalbrite filter pads.

Mini Jet Buon Vino Filter

This pressurised system filters 5 gallons of wine in 20 minutes and up to 20 gallons at a time. Users only need to turn the system on and the rest is automated. The system requires three filter pads, sold separately in three filtration grades.

Super Jet Buon Vino Filter

This pressurised system filters up to 60 gallons an hour. A built-in pressure gauge alerts users when it needs new filtration pads. The system uses three filter pads, which are sold separately.

Pressurised Wine Filter

This manual filtering system comes with a 3 gallon holding tank and filters up to 10 gallons at a time. The system may require pre-filtration additives to create a finer wine. The pressurised wine filter requires two filter pads, sold separately.

Wine Filter Pourer

Wine filter pourers with ultra fine mesh screens offer wine drinkers the chance to filter their wine by the glass. The pourer fits in an opened bottle of wine and filters out cork particles and wine sediment when pouring and also acts as a bottle stopper.
