I just made a batch of rose hip wine following Jack Keller's receipe. I was hicking and saw bunches of rose hips located in a dry river bottom. There were a few wild grapes as well that I threw in for good measure. Has anyone made this type of wine before and if so what did you think of it?

Roses are a relitive of apples--the wine tastes alot like apples

I've also come across lots of wild rose hips while pheasant hunting and have thought of making a rose hip wine. (I can see dinner now, roast pheasant and rose hip wine) Tasting them in the wild though, they are really devoid of any significant flavor. Because of this, I've never bothered to make it. If anyone has made it can says that it makes a great wine, I'd be willing to give it a try too.

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.

I have made Rosehip wine last year.

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.
