Jug of wine detail.png

Jug of wine is a food item made by using grapes with a jug of water. It requires level 35 Cooking to make, and gives the player 200 Cooking experience. Squeezing grapes into a jug of water will make unfermented wine, which after 12 seconds of fermenting, will become either a jug of wine or a jug of bad wine. Players have a chance of creating a jug of bad wine until they reach a Cooking level of 68.

A player creating a jug of wine.

Wine is a quick and easy way to gain Cooking experience. The process can go faster if you can enter the Cooking Guild. It has a water source, a jug, and grape respawns. There is a spawn point for a jug of wine in Catherby, upstairs in the building north of the west side of the bank. You can buy a jug of wine from Zambo at Karamja Wines, Spirits, and Beers or buy/steal from Fortunato's Wine stall located at the Draynor Village Market or from Ali the Barman in Pollnivneach.

Wine is one of the best foods for pure rangers and mages, due to its cheap cost and availability. A jug of wine heals 11 Hitpoints, compared to 12 from a lobster, while costing much less to buy on the Grand Exchange, however it temporarily lowers Attack by a few points. Melee-based accounts may also use wine for healing, as long they make sure to restore their Attack stat (by, for example, drinking a Restore potion). If the player does not need to attack anything, such as in Wintertodt, wines work well for any combat style as extremely cheap healing.

Wine is excellent for training during Agility, Thieving, and Wintertodt, due to those activities being unaffected by combat stats.
