If you enjoy a nice glass of homemade wine, you will want to try this Berry Wine. We made it with Saskatoon berries (native to parts of Canada) and Raspberries, which we grew in the garden. You can use a mix of any types of berries for this. We often mix 4 different types of berries and call it a Bumbleberry Wine. We enjoy this wine so much we wrote an eBook with the recipe and process for making this Wild Wine!
If you haven’t made homemade wine before, you will need to get a wine making supply kit. You’ll pay it off easily with this first batch of homemade wine.
We’ve made a blended Saskatoon Raspberry wine for the last three or four years and it is easily our favourite homemade wine to sip on. This year, we were able to put up a 5 gallon batch, as the wild berry season here was so incredibly heavy this year.
So if you like to make your own wine, take a look at this eBook. It’s been written for beginning wine makers so the whole process is covered, from crushing the berries to bottling the finished product.
Like any type of homemade wine, this Berry Wine needs to sit in the bottle for several months before drinking. At least 8 months, then just give one bottle a try.
Since we are always so busy here in the summer, I just pick and then freeze the berries in large Ziplock bags. Then, when winter rolls around and our daily works lessens so much, we just defrost the berries and get a batch of Berry wine on the go!
Beautiful colour and delicious – try making your own Berry Wine. We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.
