One year I was given some turnips, and I made wine from them. It was good, a nice golden color and spicy from the peppercorns.

I once tried tomato wine in Italy some years ago and it was like drinking watered-down sweet tomato sauce with a huge, huge acidic after-taste... I was lucky I still had enamel left on my teeth.  No offense, Jarhead, as your recipe is probably jam-up and toe curling good...the best way for me to mix tomatoes and wine is, get a good Oregon Pinot Noir and a plate of home grown ripe tomatoes, salt and cracked pepper, and enjoy.  The Oregon (cool country) Pinot Noir has a tartness to hold up to tomatoes where as a California (warm country) P.N is. too ripe and flabby to hold their own with the tomatoes.  LOL....you need to send your recipe to Italy... anything is an improvement to their tomato wine.

WARPH,
Whoa there Hoss !! It sounds like you are a wine connoisseur so you just lost your spot in my bunker when things go south. I can tell you will turn your nose up at the Mulberry wine hid  deep inside my bunker.
I drank some Far Nienta and Opus One wine before and I would rather drink Boones Farm than that dry stuff.

Personally, I like a good Johannesburg Reisling, somewhere around years 1981 or 1986...Both of those were really good years for that variety of grape.  Of course, I also like a well-made Sex on the Beach...Around here, we refer to that as "fruit juice"...:-)

Jar, ya almost had me there. But since I don't drink it would have been for someone else to drink and if the pooch isn't sharing...oh well. I'll be happy for the elderberry or whatever recipes to make and share with friends though. Not that I won't taste it  ;)

Wine connoisseur??  No way.  More of a beer man.  Give me a cold one and I'm happy as a clam.  Anyway, I'm scared of getting Wine Flu if I drink too much.  Wine Flu??  What the hell is Wine Flu... you ask?  I'm about to save your life, Jarhead. 

Check this out:  This conversation was picked up by the ever present drones in the sky and monitored in Langley Va. This recorded conversation was between two taliban raghead leaders of the Afghan Islami Group (AIG) in Central Dufferistan in the Parrot's Peak area of Afghanistan.
The conversation went like this:



Mulla Moolah: Salaam, brader.
Mullah Tota: Walaikum.
MM: May Allah bless you with health.  How are the boys in your area?
MT: They are out with the goats having a good time, brader.
MM: ah good... why are you sneezing?  And why is your nose so reddish?
MT: My nose?  Nothing.  It is just a cold.
MM: Cold?  May Allah protect you from the wine flu.
MT: Wine?  That would be in Jannah for me.
MM: Don't you listen to MSNBC, Pushto?
MT: I ran out of batteries, what did it say?
MM: The pigs are afflicted with wine flu.
MT: Pigs?  Firangis?  Wine?  Flu?  You mean the Firangis have flu?  So what?
MM: (grunt) It is a type of flu you get from wine.  Heard it on CNN too, Pushto.  The reception was scratchy.
MT: Ah wine.  May Allah protect us from worldly sins.
MM: Brader, do you know how they put flu in wine?
MT: Those western pigs, they have no morality.  Nothing would surprise me.
MM: (with another grunt) Allah knows everything.
MT: Brader, are you suggesting we have something to do with this wine flu?
MM: (inaudible) ... Sodom and Gomorrah.
MT: We should rid the world of ....(sneezes)
MM: When you go to the base have yourself checked by brader Hakim.
MT: Tell me more about this wine flu.  Is it lethal?
MM: Not for the pigs.
MT: Wine flu.  I do not know much about wine.  Ask me about afim.
MM: Wine and drugs will be the downfall of United States of Sodom and Gomorrah.
MT: You are brilliant, brader, mixing haraam with haraam for the infidel pigs.
MM: Our involvement is minimal and returns a thousand fold.
MT: May Allah be pleased with our efforts.
MM: Wonders do not cease in His Kingdom.
MT: Brader, what are you suggesting?
MM: Wine is made from grapes
MT: Yes?
MM: Grapes are halaal wine is not.
MT: Allah knows best.
MM: We feed grapes to the pigs.
MT: So that is how it spreads?
MM: The grapes would ferment in their bellies.
MT: A double whammy?  Both are haraam!
MM: You see the brilliance?
MT: Double whammy it is... drink and indulge in debauchery.
MM: Yes and then take off their clothes in freezing weather.
MT: Naoozobillah!
MM: And then makes all those porno movies.
MT: Porno movies?  What are they?
MM: You don't want to know. They make out with animals.
MT: Goats?
MM: No, they do not know that pleasure.  Dogs, pigs!
MT: May the curse of Allah fall on them.  And I hope they leave the goats alone.
MM: May they drown in their drinks.
MT: Amen, brader.
