Fresh Fruit Production

Fruit Processing at Flying Fish WineryFruit wine making is no more difficult than making wines from fresh grapes. The basic process of fruit processing is the same: it amounts to turning the fruit into juice in preparation for turning it into wine, cider, beer, port or sparkling wine. Fruit comes in many forms. In general, the best beverage are made from fresh fruits; but we can also work from frozen fruit. Fruit processing lets you turn your harvest into something special to enjoy.
