Fruit, Wine and Recipes

As we travel from/to wineries in various wine regions, we quite frequently come across fruit wines. While some people do not consider fruit wines to be a wine, I happen to think that fruit wine is a wine just as rice wine is a wine. There is a place for fruit wines. Some winemakers don’t care for fruit wines but will make some fruit wines for their portfolio in order to please their customers. Other winemakers like the challenges of making fruit wines. Look for strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, apple, peach and other fruit wines.

In addition, to enjoying either a hint of fruit or robust aromas of fruit as you are enjoying a glass of the fruit wine, use some of the fruit wine in dessert recipes. We have come across numerous recipes that use fruit wine.

The next time you visit a winery, check their tasting room portfolio. If fruit wines are available, ask to taste and ask if they have recipes to use with the fruit wine.
