Has anyone made or tried a wine out of some less usual ingrediant and how was it?

This site mentions all the above and some other wines like peapod wine, carrot wine, banana wine, tea wine and tomato wine ... to pair with that basil wine?

For Thanksgiving there's always cranberry wine and pumpkin wine

The cranberry wine is supposed to be good. I've never had any really wild flavor, but for the most part it seems that wine out of anything but grapes is often cloying.

Well, at least it is one more option the next time the question comes up ... what do I do with all this basil?

This site has all those different wine ideas. Some of them are in this link

Some standouts ...
- APPLE, PARSNIP, BANANA AND FIG SWEET SHERRY
- APRICOT, RASPBERRY AND ELDERBERRY ROSÉ WINE
- BEET, APRICOT AND RAISIN DRY SHERRY

A few recipes for your drinking pleasure .. everything from apple wine thru zucchini wine ... lilac wine or lavendar wine sound lovely at least ... leek wine or lettuce wine ... not so much
