Recipes for home brew wine making

I spent years creating these recipes with trips to Africa and Egypt and continental countries, over 240 experiments in flowers leaves roots and seeds took place before 87 varieties blended into 25 wine kits formed the basis of Wine World back in the 1990s. Why am I giving all this research away on the web? Well the cost of advertising a product is horrendous and in the last 20 years leisure hobbies have gone out the door to be replaced by sport TV and the quest for money. In a few months I will be eligible for a free bus pass, so before I pop my clogs here they are.

These recipes are given free to the public and are not to be copied or reproduced in any form without permission. Please see our contact page for more details.

The system I used was to grind the seeds or root only. Leaves and flowers were based on dry weight. The red Hibiscus flower came from the Sudan, although British Hibiscus will do just fine. You will note that many of these ingredients have been used in quality teas. The descriptions of the wines were written by a group of experienced wine tasters, who by the end of the day, were completely stoned. See the wine making page for instructions for making these wines.

Title of my wine Ingredients Description of finished wine
Albania White 50 grams of ground Aniseed seeds from Egypt A sophisticated flavour, with a hint of almonds in the bouquet, keep for Xmas.
Bali White 45 grams of Dill (small seeds) ground Imparts a strong taste of the tropics, coconut (Malibu) excels when taken as a long drink with lemonade or lime with ice. You will be a most popular host.
Bali Rosé 10 grams of Dill
30 grams dried Red Hibiscus flower
This delightfully aromatic wine is crisp with a fruity palate.
Bulgaria White 25 grams of Heather flower
25 grams of Camomile flower
A wonderful flowery nose & a most refreshing taste, a little slow to ferment but well worth the wait. Highly recommended.
Bulgaria Red 20 grams of Heather flower
30 grams of Red Hibiscus flower
Refreshingly smooth red fruity wine, yet fresh and fragrant.
Chile White 50 grams of Heather flower It's clean fresh fragrant scent reminds you of the Alps in the spring, with a mellow spicy finish. An ideal table wine.
Chile Rosé 30 grams of Daisy flower
15 grams of Black Mallow flower
A cheerful light refreshing nose and delicate acidity, ideal for the less adventurous drinker.
China White 25 grams of Ginseng (ground)
25 grams of Fennel seed (ground)
This wine would make an excellent aperitif (sweeten to taste) It's round aroma is very pleasing. With 50% Ginseng maybe more appropriate as a night-cap.
Czechoslovakia White 30 grams Camomile flower
10 grams Violet leaf
5 grams Lemon Verbina
A blend of 3 wine world flowers and leaves a very rich Liebfraumilch taste, which catches the imagination. An excellent example of blended wine, it livens the taste buds.
Czechoslovakia Red 25 grams of Red Hibiscus flower
20 grams of Blue Mallow flower
5 grams of Violet leaf
A very delicate nose but surprisingly robust on the palate, a pleasant finish.
Egypt White 40 grams of Star Anis (ground) For Pernod fans this is a must. For the rest, try as a long drink with lemonade. It's lingering flavour will quench that thirst.
Egypt Rosé 25 grams of Red Hibiscus flower
25 grams of Violet Leaf
A wonderfully light and smooth wine, with a delicate Violet flavour. This beautiful florally aromatic wine is most refreshing when chilled.
Egypt Red 50 grams of Red Hibiscus flower for red wine or 100grams of Red Hibiscus flower for port A fruity port type wine, highly recommended. Using a 100 gram portion, with oak added did make a heavy port wine.
France White 10 grams of Lemon Verbena
10 grams of Violet leaf
A wonderful taste of lime and lemon, this delightful aromatic wine will encourage your friends to the world of home brew.
France Rosé 25 grams of Lemon Verbena
25 grams of Red Hibiscus flower
This wine is slightly tangy on the palate with a gentle hint of mint. A good nose to match
Germany White 15 grams of Yarrow flower
15 grams Ginseng
15 grams of Mullein flower
Subtle fruity wine with a pleasing nose and finish contains 33% Ginseng
Germany Red 30 grams of Mullein flower
20 grams of Black Mallow flower
A young fresh taste, slightly nutty, try with meat dishes
Hungary White 50 grams of Yarrow flowers Contains one of Cul peppers favourite health giving life enhancing ingredients (his words). A clear really robust wine, could tolerate diluting with lemonade or tonic water for a long drink.
Hungary Rosé 25 grams of Heather flower
25 grams of Blue Mallow flower
A gentle wine on both your taste buds and your nose. Very much a pot- pourri of a wine. If you're into champagning your wine, this is the one.
India White 40 grams of Buchu leaf Mix as a long drink with coke/lemonade or tonic water, a great summer wine, if you don't mix you will never have enough.
India Rosé 50 grams of Red Rose petals A fragrant bouquet of flowers is understandable from rose petals, with a subtle taste to match. A very gentle wine, most pleasing.
Malawi White 40 grams of Fennel Seed A taste of the Orient, this wine conjures up the imagination. It has been suggested many times over centuries, that the ingredients are a sliming agent.
Malawi Rosé 20 grams of Cowslip flower
25 grams of Red Hibiscus flower
Exotic yet velvety wine with a fragrant delicate nose, but very fruity and a good finish.
Spain White 50 grams of Orange Blossom As with all whites, chill this to enjoy the full benefit of Orange Blossom.
Spain Rosé 30 grams of ground Rose Hip
10 grams of Mullein flowers
10 grams of Red Hibiscus flower
Moscat grape springs to mind. Recommended to sweeten to taste for a dessert wine.
