Wine is much touted drink in many cultures and civilizations. Since the time man discovered the art of winery, wine has been used in cooking. Greeks and Romans have extensively used wine in cooking from the time this drink became popular in their culture. Greeks considered wine as the drink of Gods. Hindus and Buddhists use wine in their esoteric rituals. Wines enhance the taste of food.

Brewing wine in home is a simple process, even so for rose petal wine. Home brewing is legal in many countries; however, selling home brewed wine may not be legal. But still, you can treat your guests with home brewed wine, or give them as gifts. Normally, legal age for drinking wine is 18 years. Remember, wine may harm a pregnant woman, and driving under the influence of wine is a bad idea.

You can not only make tea from rose petals, but also wine. Rose petal tea has many health benefits. Rose roots, hips, and petals make a great wine. Rose petal wine is very agreeable to our taste. When you are brewing rose petal wine, make sure rose petals are free from pesticides and rinsed thoroughly. If you cannot get enough rose petals for brewing rose petal wine, you can collect the amount you need by freezing the rose petals.

@lovedoctor, I love cooking but I have few recipes. Thanks for being here.

@kohuether, we use rose water in our cooking, for taste and aroma. I'm glad that this was an unexpected surprise. Thanks for your comment.

Wow, this looks so amazing! I love using roses in cooking - it's an unexpected surprise. I once found rose petal liqueur and had fun creating cocktails out of it. And, rosewater makes a nice addition to desserts. This is something I've never had but thanks to your instructions, I just might!

Rose wine sounds really good. the red wine poached peaches look very juicy. Add a slice of cream cheese to those and there you have a yummy dessert. Voting up awesome & useful.

I can almost taste this! Very nice and I see that many love this idea as well. I don't drink, but it is one I think I would enjoy if I did.

@midget, thanks for being nice by always reading me.

@Sunshine, rose wine is mood booster. Thanks for your comment.

@Angelo, I meant roots, hips and petals make a great wine. Thanks for pointing the mistake

Cheers to you all.

Nice recipe. Rose hips are not roots (at least in the States). They are the fruit with seeds that develops when the flower is fertilized and drops off. You can eat the rose hips if I remember right. Good article and great idea to make wine. Voted up +

This is interesting Vinaya. I know some of the people eat the petals of the rose but I did not know that it can be made into wine. I know I will not be able to make it but having this information is good enough for me. Thanks for sharing.

@mckbirdbks, thanks for appreciating my recipe hubs. You are a wonderful community member.

@Ruchira, you should definitely try. Thanks for your comment.

@Pooja, it is not necessary to airtight the jar for fermentation. But you many if you want. Clove and pepper builds up wine taste, and sulphite gives wine strong taste.

@blaise, poetry and wine goes hand in hand. LOL

@Brian, thanks for your comments here and there. Rose tea is easy recipe whereas it takes time to brew rose wine.

Hope this works as well as the rose petal tea you recommended in your last hub. I tried that and it was superb. Rose wines are nearly all good, light and fragrant so I'm expecting this to taste equally nice when I try it t. Voted up and shared.

aha....so good!

1st doubt: when you keep the mixture for the fermentation, is it air-tight container? else it might catch other fungi growth.

2nd doubt: Why are clove, pepper and sulphate added to the mixture? what are their significance?

Sounds good. I remember when my aunt and uncle use to make wine. It was rose wine but fruit wine. Peachs sound great. Love your rose photos. Voted Up.

Interesting. I'd like to try this sometime, but I'm always afraid of contaminating the sterilized jar simply because it's open to the air. How do you keep it sterile? I know this is a dumb question, and I feel dumb asking it, but what am I missing?

Sounds marvelous. I think this is worth-trying. This might help me discover what to replace that Rose' Peach tang that's so irresistible. First time can be very exciting, though. Thanks for this, really, and more from you. Cheers to that!
