That's what I'm having a hard time with right now!

I think that would be fun. We have lots of wineries in the area, and they did a contest at the harvest festival this year to see who could stomp the most juice out of it. I tried to enter but it was full. Next year!

Actually, I think we've made wine out of several fruits except for grapes lol.
I really don't drink so I'm still learning about how things should taste and look. It's been really interesting!

It is blackberry, pluot, and strawberry (left to right). I'm still debating on what to make next

How is it made ladies? Is it difficult?
I bought this book at my local beer/wine making store. It's been a great resource!
