Spiced Pumpkin Wine

This month we began fermenting spiced pumpkin wine.  This wine is used as the base in our pumpkin wine slushy, which is reminiscent of pumpkin cheesecake, creamy and full of fall flavors.   We made our experimental batch with 90lbs of long neck pumpkins and added raisins, cinnamon sticks, cloves, nutmeg, and fresh ginger root.

The spice blend is a little different than previous years but it smells glorious and we expect to produce a small batch of wine (25 gallons) next fall.  In the mean time, stop by and check out last years pumpkin wine test batch.  It will be out in the slushy machine next month!
