How to Make Homemade Wine

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

Dad corking the 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!

    My hubby made some wine a few years ago and I don't want to know the % it was very high. It was yummy though. We'd love to make our own like that, one day.
