Looking for a cherry wine recipe? This one looks like it has potential. The primary fermentation is spot on in terms of process. I love how they burry it in sand to keep the must cool and then top it with a vine leaf – what imagery! The recipe even calls for racking, or drawing off the wine clear into bottles. You would need to add inoculation with your own yeast. Maybe a Montrachet?

Alas, I do not have access to cherries, otherwise I would give this one a go.

Here’s to the glories of summer!
