What Exactly is a Fruit Wine?

Fruit wine is a term that refers to a fermented beverage (also sometimes called “country wine”) made with a fruit juice base that is not grape juice. Think plum, mulberry, lemon, or any fermentable plant matter you think sounds delicious, like roses.

Is Fruit Wine, Wine?

Technically, fruit wine is wine. Although “wine” is conventionally used to refer to the beverage made of grapes, the process of making fruit wine—allowing yeast to feed on the sugars in fruit and become alcohol—is the same. Depending on the fruit used, fruit wine can produce red wines and white wines.

What Does Fruit Wine Taste Like?

Fruit wine tastes predominantly of the base fruit you choose to feature. Depending on the length of your fermentation process, it can range from tangy and funky to soft and mellow. By measuring and adjusting the acids in fruit wine, you can make the blend more dynamic and balanced.

Here’s our variety of flavored wines that you and your family will surely enjoy:

Bunnyville Liquor: Kumquat Wine

Bunnyville Liquor: Kumquat Wine

Kumquats grow on the hillsides below 500 meters above sea level. They are round and plump, young fruits with green skin, moderate acidity, and sweetness. These are carefully selected kumquats by small farmers in southern Taiwan.

Kumquats have a moderate sweetness and sourness and are most suitable for brewing fruit wines, which have also become one of Taiwan’s special flavored wines.

Kumquat is an evergreen tree that produces edible golden-yellow fruit. The peel has a sweet flavor, but the fruit has a distinctly sour center. The plant symbolizes good luck in China and other Asian countries, where it is often kept as a houseplant and given as a gift during the Lunar New Year. Bunnyville Kumquat Liqueur has a golden yellow color with a balanced sweet and sour taste. It is best served with ice, and you will find it one of the greatest aperitifs to stimulate your appetite.

Bunnyville Liquor: Mulberry Wine

Bunnyville Liquor: Mulberry Wine

About a month before and after the Qingming Festival every year, it is the best time to harvest mulberries. This year, we selected mulberries grown and produced in Yizhu Township, Chiayi County to make mulberry wine.

The winemaker selects the best mulberries with thick and fleshy flesh, purple-black color, full water content, sweet taste like honey, and bright color. And because the production period of mulberries is very short, this wine is a fresh seasonal wine. The mulberry fruit is approximately 2–3 cm long. Immature fruits are white, green, or pale yellow. The fruit turns pink and then red while ripening, then dark purple or black, and has a sweet flavor when fully ripe. The ripe fruit is often sold as nutritional supplements. Many people believe it can maintain the beauty and keep young. Bunnyville Mulberry Liqueur has a dark purple color. It is sweet and best served with ice.

Bunnyville Liquor: Honey Wine

Bunnyville Liquor: Honey Wine

Bunnyville Honey Liqueur uses honey that is made from nectar collected by bees from the majority of longan flowers grown in the mountain of Taiwan. Honey-Wine was produced in ancient history throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia. It has played an important role in mythology. Some stories turned the drinker into a poet or scholar.

Bunnyville Honey Wine is made from Nantou’s orange blossom nectar. Orange blossom nectar has a clear light amber color, a silky-smooth texture, and a light new aroma of orange peel is the biggest feature. This nectar is selected by winemakers after years of research, visiting many beekeepers, and verifying its sweetness, water content, and purity.

Every February and March is the orange blossom season, and beekeepers get the freshest honey during the blooming season. The production of honey decreases year by year, so every drop of wine is pure and precious. Every time you take a sip of the sweet mead, you not only

Bunnyville Liquor: Plum Wine 

The origin and variety of the plums determine the taste of plum wine. This year, the green plums from Xinyi Township, Nantou, Taiwan are selected to make plum wine, which is brewed using the family wine recipe that the grandma has kept for nearly a hundred years. Following the wine recipe, the green plums that are round and close to nine-point ripeness are selected, washed, sun-dried, and finished. The brewing work is then carried out.

The fresh, natural flavors of plums and spirits combine perfectly, balancing all the sweetness, acidity, and unique fragrance of the plum pit.

The plums cultivated in Taiwan are mostly farmed in the central mountain range. Plums can induce appetite, and dispel abdominal distention. Since these plums are highly acidic and only slightly sweet, they are not often used as fresh fruit after harvest and are instead turned into plum liqueur. Bunnyville Plum Liqueur uses fresh plums harvested in April. It is only made once a year in batch production. You can drink it on the rocks, with soda water, or mix it with green tea.


Bunnyville Liquor: Lemon Wine

Bunnyville Liquor: Lemon Wine is produced and brewed using the ancient method of Limoncello in Italy. It has a uniquely tasty flavor due to locally sourced fresh yellow lemons mixing with cold spring water. Limoncello is traditionally served chilled as an after-dinner digestif living up to its name as a popular table wine in the world.

Bunnyville Liquor: Lychee Wine

(Chinese: 荔枝酒, lìzhījiǔ) is it a full-bodied dessert wine made of 100% lychee fruit? We gathered the freshest and juiciest Lychees in town to provide an expensive and rich, sweet taste. It is usually served ice cold, either straight up or on the rocks with food. Lychee wine is believed to pair better with shellfish and Asian cuisine than with heavier meat dishes. This refreshing beverage can also be used as a cocktail mixer paired with other spirits.

Lychee is made into wines that can be consumed fresh or a few years before serving. Lychee itself has a unique rosy flavor and lychee wines keep the subtle flavor of the berry in the wine but it is not overpowering. This wine is inherently sweet and pungent.

This is Bunnyville Liquors’ version of rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the colors from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method. The pink color can range from a pale “onion skin” orange to a vivid near purple, depending on the grape varieties used and winemaking techniques. Usually, the wine is labeled rosé in French, Portuguese, and English-speaking countries, rosado in Spanish, or Rosato in Italian.
