Top 10 St George’s Day drinks

Fruit wine

Fruit wineEnglish still and sparkling wines are capturing the headlines at present, but as Fiona Beckett pointed out in her recent Guardian column, “there’s a strong tradition of making fruit- and flower-flavoured wines that also seems to be undergoing a revival.”

Using hedgerow or orchard fruit and/or flowers such as roses and dandelions, fruit wines can, sometimes justifiably, be seen as the preserve of eccentrics and be a little odd themselves (broad bean wine anybody?). However, as Beckett points out in her article, when well made, good fruit wines may in fact be more enjoyable than poorer quality grape wine.

They are also relatively inexpensive, largely low alcohol and have a level of sweetness that many find pleasing.
