New wine in old bottles is a delicious autumn drink!
I have some friends who are wonderful organic gardeners and they have introduced me to Federweisse or new wine. It is wonderful, light, fruity and tangy and slightly bubbly! Now I have a reason to plant some wine grapes just to make this wine. All it takes is pressing the juice so that it is free of skins and seeds and then bottling the juice and letting it set until the fermentation process starts. The yeast on the grapes provides enough starter, nothing else has to be added. The alcoholic content gets higher the longer it sits, but I love it when it is still sweet and fruity, reminding me somewhat of sangria. Definitely a cheery drink, shown here with a chocolate cake for a afternoon treat.
