This was so much fun to make! I made it with all organic ingredients and used the resulting wine for my May Day punch. I added dried Sweet Woodruff and fresh strawberries and it was delightful! It's definitely a more rustic wine, not a crystal-clear table wine, but I was happy to have an organic wine with no added sulfites. No one reported a hangover from this wine!
Have 1 batch on the go using 5 jugs white grape juice and 2 jugs white cranberry. Second batch using 5 jugs white cranberry and 2 jugs red cranberry...... initial taste test was good ! and the price was certainly right :-) I will post again after its aged a bit to give final taste results
