Try and find a local allotment site and ask if you can have some or buy some cheap rhubarb,it has grown really well over the last month if so you just need about 3lb of it. Mix and match the fruit to 3lb of sugar,I've just done 2lb rhubarb and 1lb brambles to 3lb sugar in a demijohn. Or go to the local homebrew shop / wilkinson's or Boyes store,you might find a cheap wine kit.

What about using dried flowers such as hibiscus or elderflowers, or frozen berries . Another very popular wine is called Skeeter Pee. You should find a recipe for that wine here but all it takes is lemon juice (supermarket bottles) and sugar. This is like a hard lemonade but you can add frozen berries to make the flavors more complex.

Fish & chip & meat pie wine?

Staples for winemaking in a cold season are preserved fruits. Dried fruit, jams, jumbo-sized tinned fruit. Juice concentrates and cordials are another. Always, though, you run the risk that they contain a preservative.

Sugar water and yeast with koolaide flavor is what the kids make here.

+1 for the Skeeter Pee, super easy, no fresh fruit needed. It is essentially just sugarwater with the lemon juice in it and/or packets of koolaid could be good.

Skeeter Pee is also easy because you dont have to age it. If you wait to clarify, it is ready to drink on bottling day
