What is Fruit Wine?
It may sound a little counterintuitive to call a specific type of wine ‘fruit wine’. All wine is made from fruit, isn’t it?
Yes, it is, but traditionally, ‘wine’ refers to any grape-based variety and ‘fruit wine’ encompasses everything else, including floral wines such as Elderflower wine. Fruit wine can be made from virtually any plant matter that can be fermented, which means there are almost limitless possibilities!
All of these wonderful fruits can produce juice that can be used to create a fruit wine like our smooth, full-flavoured Cherry Wine, or blended to make complex, delicious fruit-filled mixes like our Summer Berry Wine!
Fruit wines typically have comparable alcohol levels to traditional wine, somewhere between 10-15%, but can come in low alcohol forms like cider. In the UK, fruit wine is also called country wine.
