The neighbor had three gooseberry bushes he was giving away. Somebody had passed them on to him thinking they were grape vines. I snapped them right up and planted them (a little too close to each other) in the back yard. I had to go and fish out a bottle of the Beta Grape wine I made from the 8 lbs of grapes he gave me off his vine last year to say thanks. Just to keep it coming I added a bottle of my plum wine and a 750 bottle of my Whiskey Barrel Ale.
So. . . never having eaten a gooseberry, I am very curious how your wine turned out.
