My parents have been making their own wine for many years now. This past Sunday, Troy and I helped them bottle some of their wine. They mostly make it from homegrown fruits such as apples, pears, strawberries, etc. They have also used mixes and juices such as Welch's grape juice. My parent's wine is quite dry but very tasty.
Here are some photos of the process:

The wine...we only bottled one or two of these
Troy filling the bottles
Dad corking the bottles...you have to be careful because if you do it wrong, you can shatter the bottle (which has happened before)
It was a quick process because we had so many people working. And we even got some bottles to take home for ourselves!
