Fresh Fruit Production

Wines, Ciders and Ports – Made from Your Own Fruit!

Fruit Processing at Flying Fish WineryDon’t limit yourself to just grapes – making wine from other fruit is just as easy! The basic process is the same: crush the fruit into juice and then add yeast to ferment. For the very best results we recommend that you use fresh fruit, but you can make perfectly good beverages with frozen fruit as well.

Whether you are making wine, cider, beer, port, or even sparkling wine, we can turn your harvest into something special.

FRUIT DROP-OFFS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY!

When people think about making wine, the image that normally comes into their heads is one of adding yeast to grape juice. Some of the more adventurous crush their own grapes, but it’s still the same story. At Flying Fish, we give you other options – like helping you turn your fruit into wine. Many people think that grapes are for wine and the only other thing you can do is turn fruit into cider. Nothing could be further from the truth! Here at Flying Fish, we can supply everything you need for fresh fruit wine making except the fruit – that’s your department.

Let other people turn their fruit into jams or jellies, or worse yet let it go to waste. Bring yours to Flying Fish and turn it into wine, cider, or even port. Whether you want a sweet wine or prefer something dryer, we can help you get the sugar and alcohol content to match your palate.

As a fresh fruit u-brew, Flying Fish Winery can handle both fresh and frozen fruit so you don’t have to limit yourself to what’s in season. Our standard kit makes 30 bottles of 750ml each, or 23 litres of wine. Depending on the fruit involved you may need anywhere from 40 to 100 pounds per batch.
