Top Rated Fruit Wines

Raspberries on the vine

Most wines are made from commonly cultivated grape varietals like Chardonnay and Merlot, but the process used to make them can be applied to almost anything, from dates and raspberries to peaches and apples. The process of fermenting such fruits is quite different from adding them to a grape or grain spirit, as is done with many liqueurs and flavored spirits. These are the best fruit wines we've tasted, starting with our highest rated wines.
