    I've made wine for years out of a variety of fruits (even grapes). My specialty is rhubarb. Recipe for 5 gal:

    10# rhubarb stalks, washed and cut into pieces.
    10# sugar

    pour sugar over rhubarb in a clean 5 gal brewing bucket and mix well. Let steep for 48 hours until juice starts to "weep" from rhubarb. Add enough water to make 5 gallons, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 Tbsp. strong black tea (steeped until cool) and 1 packet champagne yeast. Ferment 3 days, then strain out rhubarb. Top off with water to make 5 gallons. Ferment 4 months, racking twice. Bottle and age at least 3 months (6+ is better).

    A great recipe, but listen to this and this is true.
    In some Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia some folk secretly make their own wine too, but then most religionists are hypocrites of the first degree.

    I was considering making my own wine this fall since we have tons of grapes behind our house but I'm still researching different ways to go about making it. Does anyone have some suggestions?

    I usually make some mead for Midsummer and glögg for Yule. I usually use lemon, ginger and peach for the mead, but I've thought of making something different for the next batch.

    wine is only made of grapes...there exist not such think as wine from bananas or any fruit...lolol...what u do with fruits is licor. I am portuguese and this country is full of grape fields...and i already made wine too. Wine was brought to peninsula iberica (now portugal and spain) by the romans. Just get an european recipe for wine...better portuguese or french cause they r the best on the business.

    A wine can be made from any fermentable fruit. Some wines, however, have specific names. A wine brewed from apples is called "cider", for instance. If no other fruit is specified, it is assumed to have been brewed from grapes. If the wine is then distilled (but not sweetened) it becomes brandy.

    Liqueur is something different. A liqueur is a sweetened flavored distilled product, either distilled fermented fruit, or more commonly, flavorings mixed with some kind of distilled hard liquor such as whiskey or vodka. Some liqueurs you might be familiar with are creme de menthe, Bailey's Irish Cream and Kahlua.
