Talking Rhubarb Wine

Happy New Year to everyone.
I have made 1 gal of rhubarb wine for the first time. Has anyone tried it? Is it worth making? Any advice would be appreciated.

Not tried it yet as it is still bubbling nicely. Please send recipe if you find it. I'll try it out.

Default How did your rhubarb wine go?

I have been away for a good week and coming back I discovered that my rhubarb has taken over the garden
I just harvested about 12 lbs and that has not made an iota of difference. I reckon there is at least 5 times the amount still there.
Unfortunatelly there is only so much crumble and jam you can stomach, but it seem a shame to let it all go to waste.
So I was thinking of making some wine.
Has anybody any experience with it?

I haven't made or tasted rhubarb wine but last year I made strawberry and rhubarb gin and it is delicious on a hot day with ice. Will be making some more this year.

Hi shetty,

Yes, made exactly the same as sloe gin but no thorns

I've discovered you can put practically anythin in vodka or gin and any combination. A friend made 'tropical' gin. It had pineapple, strawberries, rasps, grapes and rhubarb and it is lovely.

Rhubarb wine is marvellous, make it if you can. One word of caution, if you're making the sparkling version, beware - it can be very volatile and burst bottles better than anything I have ever encountered before. Even supposedly 'still' rhubarb wine can start a secondary fermentation and shatter bottles.
