A special country wine has recently emerged from the Brew Centre…
Pendle Hedgerow Wine is made from fruits sourced from the Ormskirk area and includes:
Three versions of the wine were created, one Dry at 12.7% vol and one sweet at 14% vol – both of which are bottled and have had 6 months conditioning. The third is a special batch that has been batch maturing for over a year and will be ready in 2012.

True berries include grapes, cranberries and bananas but, confusingly, not raspberries, blackberries and strawberries! Blackberries and Raspberries are referred to as Aggregate Fruits and the tiny hairs on their outside are remnants of stigmas and styles…well, now you know!
Sad, I know, but I had a debate about berries recently and trawled the net to answer the questions. I can imagine some other geeky soul doing the same some time and finding this summary!
