Making homemade wines has been a traditional cottage pastime as long as
there have been traditional cottages. Hedgerows and orchards provided
the exotic, and now often obscure or expensive, ingredients to produce
wines carry the flavor of the fruits and flavorings used, and they can
often be varied from dry to sweet, according to your taste. A good

is not difficult, although some care is required.

amount of searching for the ingredients. But, here

interest while you develop a recipe of your own. You will have vintage
months just as the vineyards have vintage years. You'll wish you had
made more of one batch and a lot less of another. The beauty of the
hobby is the surprise at the end.
Most of the equipment you
will need is probably already in your kitchen.
