My partner & I just bought a new 40 acre place to start a vineyard &
winery, which is to say I have a lot of space for experimentation.
I've never made wine with mulberry before, so this is definitely not
on my tried & true list. But I love making wine with deep purple
fruit. My aronia wines have been turning out very nice.
I'm certainly open to trying other varieties & even the wild which
I've never seen in my area & not even sure what that would be. A lot
of folks around here plant the Russian mulberries but I'm not a fan of
them, they really don't ripen well for me & they have a very herby
& quite truthfully I kinda doubt that Illinois Everbearing will make
it thru a true Wisconsin winter. We'll see.
