If you enjoy the taste of commercial wine made from grapes, hold onto your decanter. We would like to introduce you to another world of wines - one as old as mankind and as fresh as a spring garden. For thousands of years, tribal gatherers explored woods and fields in search of fruits, flowers, roots and leaves. With nature's bounty in hand, they then developed and brewed local beverages to include in religious events and to mark other important occasions. From these humble beginnings evolved the art of winemaking. Today, few people are aware that wine can be produced from a wide variety of plants - or they were, until now. WILD WINES was written to revive these age-old winemaking techniques so that you can create delicious organic wines at home. WILD WINES begins by exploring the elements of wine - taste, sweetness, colour and type. It then looks at the differences between commercial wines, organic wines and wild wines. Every aspect of winemaking is then explained in detail, from the use of ingredients and equipment to the fermenting process. This is followed by over seventy-five wild wine recipes that use fruits, flowers, roots or leaves. And to make sure that your homemade wines are as full of flavour as they can be, a chart at the beginning of each recipe section guides you to the best time and place to collect your ingredients, as well as providing information on colour, flavour, aroma and more.
