Looking for exotic wine experiences and stories

Posted by StoneTempleHoldings, May 21, 2012.

I am looking for other's experiences with drinking any other type of wine then grape wine. Wine can be made from any fruit as we all know. Can someone send me information on other kinds of wines that they have enjoyed ? Has anyone had any unique experiences with exotic wines from remote regions of the world ?

Never had the desire. Kinda like making coffeee out of roasted garbanzos. Why bother? Maybe
I just don't get it.

Coffee from roasted garbazos?  That actually sounds interesting.

Haha Coffee is called coffee for a reason right. I doubt you can make coffee from anything else. Although that is an interesting thought haha.

I have had Raspberry wine from Korea. Pretty good! A little on the sweet side though.

Well, duh.  Color me stupid.  I guess that tomorrow I'll ask for a hot cup of Garbanzo (or Chick Pea).

Haha well I didnt think it was a good comparison. But hey ill enjoy a cup of roasted Garbanzo anytime. We have it all the time back home! In solid form of course.

I'v enjoyed mead (fermentation of honey rather then grapes) a few times, mainly at Ren fairs if you wan't had it think moscato but sweeter and a little less acidic. Realy gets you into the spiret of the fair after a few tankerds! Last fair i went to also had a raspberry flavored mead that i remembers was rather good.

another exotic one i'v had was a plum rice wine that was flavored with chillies. started off very smooth and sweet but quickely got a nice burn from the chillies mixed with the alcohol. It was really good but what i really liked about it is that they used a japanese legend as a motif for the wine and for the reason to add the chillies. if i remember right the legend was about a young woman who was fell in love and married but later cought her husbend cheating and through jelousey turned into a demon to have revenge on her unfathfull husbend. thus the tagline on the bottle "in life fire sometimes comes after sweetness."

although i'v never tried them one of my cook books has recipies for Parsnip wine and Rhubarb wine. the rhubarb might be intersting but i dont know about the parsnips

I knew a family who made a drink at Christmas, each and every year !

They called it their wine!

They fermented oranges and rice.

It was special, in its own category !

I have also had mead a couple of times.It is a traditional old Enlish drink made from honey.At Hatfield House in Hertfordshire they serve it with their Elizabethan dinner.Also a few years ago when I visited Portugal I was served a traditional Portugese peasant liquore made from fremented wild berries to which honey was added during distillation to give sweetness.The bees that made the honey had fed on the flowers of saiod wild fruit plants
