Grape Wine


Our Christmas traditions are incompete without home made wine and fruit cake. my mum in law is an expert in wine making. our guests had an enjoyable time with it. i'm in a hurry and lemme quickly get down to the recipe.

black wine grapes-1 kg
sugar-1 kg
yeast-1 tsp
wheat grains-1 tsp
water-2 litre (boiled and cooled)


Wash the grapes and combine all ingredients except the water and keep in a big air tight urn or glass bottle. add the water and mix thoroughly and store for twenty one days. don't forget to stir EVERYDAY. then strain. again store the strained mix in air tight urn for twenty one days WITHOUT STIRRING. fill the wine in glass bottles that are air tight. there will be adequate color to the wine and you need not add color. it's ready for use. enjoy in sips or gulps as per your discretion :)

Happy New Year!

My mom was a great wine maker too. She used to make Chinese rice wine at home. Friends and relatives love to get from her to use for cooking, especially for women in confinement period. Chinese believes women after birth, good to consume some rice wine to build up the internal body strength especially to clear the internal wind from body.

I still remembered when she worked on her wine, quite some taboos to follow. She won't like us go into the kitchen and she said no bad words during the process else the rice wine would turn bad and not sweet anymore :-P

Too bad she is now in nursery and suffered from Alzemier and I didn't get a chance to learn that skill from her. :-(

I think this wine making is seriously tough.Mine is so easy in comparison.. ( it is commercial lol )

That air tight jar while the yeast is acting on the sugars, generates a lot of CO2 and I hope there is an outlet for its release or else there could be trouble.

So how did the wine turn out.. sweet... dry . ?
