Many fruits can be used to make wine, including berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries), apples, pears, peaches, and plums. The process for making fruit wine is similar to that for grape wine, but the fruit should be crushed and fermented before being pressed and clarified.
The taste and characteristics of fruit wines can vary greatly depending on the type of fruit used. Berry wines tend to be light and fruity, while apple and pear wines can be more dry and crisp. Peach and plum wines can be more flavorful and sweet. Additionally, fruit wines tend to have a shorter aging period than grape wines.
