I'd never heard of it before, but according to wikipedia it's "highly astringent, though a jelly can be made from it." and (this would seem important) it has been used as an insect repellant.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Callicarpa

I'd give it a taste & see what you think; if you think it's worth a shot, I say go for it! Should be easy to make a gallon of it just to see if it's worth it to make 6 gallons later.
Regards, GF.

I am curious about this as well. I just took a walk in the woods and found millions, nay billions of these berries.

I mostly brew beer, do not know much about wine, but wondered if a wine can be made from these. Or maybe add to a sour beer, although I would be behind on that one.

Please report back if you tried this or find more info.
Thanks,
John
