This is one of our all-time favorites. I have 10 gallons in secondary right now, and Bob is now dealing with 25 pounds of frozen chokecherries, so I can make another 8 gallons today. He is in charge of the "raw" part- picking and freezing the fruit, smashing the raw fruit, carrying heavy things, etc. while I'm in charge of the "fermentation" part. (Please don't tell him that I'm doing the easy part!)

Here's one 5 gallon carboy ready to be racked (on the right is a crabapple wine):

This wine is our "every day" wine, but it's good enough for company. Most people couldn't tell you the base fruit- it tastes like a nice red wine.

I split my batch in half so I could oak some and have the rest without. There was a little left over so I bottled it. Wow is it good! Needs to mellow a little, but with as young as it is it's going to be awesome this fall!
