Haven't made the wine, but my wife used to make rose hip jam that was superb. I just looked and there are still hips on the roses here. may try it myself.
Always making fruit wines from odd sources.Apple/grape/cherry,
Boysenberry/apple, pomegranate/blueberry, etc.
Bottle aging our first vintage from Valiant. "Prince Valiant the first '08"
Backyard vineyard with 75 vines. Mostly Swenson hybrids and MN

Rosehips will be there throughout the fall season and
great part of the winter to.
The birds feed on them during winter.
So still time to pick them.
I used 2 kilo rosehips for 5 liter wine.
Added sugar until ABV 11%
The full recipe is on my web-log.
It is a light blush wine.
