Most dried fruit already had a healthy dose of sodium metabisulfite to preserve the campden soak has been done for you.
Drank too much?...Is that a thing?

Okay - so I've got unlimited access to peaches & apricots.

I could certainly dry them and then later rehydrate them and make a wine. What are the pros/cons to said process rather than just making the wine to begin with from fresh fruit? I can see dehydration as a storage technique - but so is wine-in-the-bottle. Confused - thanks for the help.
