I would like to make some pear wine and have no access to large enough
quantities of pear juice .

Does anyone have any suggestions of where to get some?

I have had suggestions of getting the baby pear juice, canned pears from the
store( and mash the pears) and so forth.

I bought 2 bushels and put them through my juicer.  Worked great.

If you are anywhere Near New Mexico, get in touch with me.  I made 1000
pounds into pressed juice (homemade 8 bushel press), and into wine.  Raw
juice is 1.050, needs acid and the other stuff.  Tasty.

I get about 15 gallons of juice from 150# of fruit.  I don't make a big
issue of yield, and I don't want to ruin the wine by overpressing with
the hydraulic press.  It takes less than a day for one person to pick a
half ton of fruit.

I let the other 2500 (a pickup truck load +) pounds of fruit fall off
the tree.  I hate to see it rot, but I can't process all of it, and
nobody seems to want more than a few pounds.

Oh, these are the asian "apple pears"  they store well.
