My grandfather use to make wine with almost any kind of fruit
(ie. Cherry, Apple, Peach,etc.).  I would like to try and make my own
wine, however I am not sure of the process!  Please email any
info or steps on making a jug or two of old-fashion country wine!

In the early 1960's H. E. Bravery published a book entitled
"Successful Wine Making at Home."  It has been revised several times
since.  The recipes in that book sound like they would be of interest
to you.  The methods he uses are typical of the 1960's, however you
can use modern methods with his recipes.  Also, some of the
ingredients might best be modernized.  He uses tea for tanin.  Now
days we use grape tanin.  He uses raisins for yeast nutrient.  It is
all right to use those things.  In fact you may prefer the flavor.

Anyhow, I suggest looking in second-hand book shops for that book.  It
is commonly available and cheap.  I use Bravery's recipies a lot in my
own wine making.
