    My DH and I are newbies at wine making. I have access to a lot of peaches, so I asked about making peach wine. We have googled a lot of recipes, but I would rather find out from experienced wine makers what to do and what not to do, [​IMG] because if we do something wrong, we won't know untill after peach season is over.

    Thanks for any help. [​IMG]

    My boyfriend makes delicious homemade wine, I believe it is a family recipe from way back and it is more alcoholic than most peoples wines but it is fantastic, will have to see if I can get him to cough up the recipe [​IMG]

    Quote:Peach wine is actually one of the more difficult wines. Most hobbyists end up 'cheating' to add the necessary body by adding some white grape juice during the fermentation process. [​IMG]
