Did You Know?... About Fruit Wine

Almost any fruit juice can be persuaded to ferment into a wine-like beverage, with a wide range of results. Common in regions where grapes don't grow as well, there are a range of styles of "fruit wines", like hard cider, dandelion wine, or plum wine. The sugar content of most fruit juices needs to be augmented with additional sugar to allow for proper fermentation, and often additional yeasts need to be introduced. The process often creates simple, syrupy sweet drinks, with the simple, straight-forward flavors of the fruit dominating. They can be incredibly nice alongside dessert or for sipping on a hot day.
