Pomegranate wines

The word "pomegranate" comes from the Latin "pomum granatum" which means "apple with many seeds." Pomegranate wine is an alcoholic beverage made in whole or part from pomegranates. It is a traditional drink in eastern Europe and the middle east. Pomegranate wine recipes start with either fresh pomegranates or pomegranate juice.

Pomegranate wine has a beautiful red brick color and pronounced aromas and flavors of juicy pomegranate. The fruit has to be juicy enough, as well as retaining high levels of sugar and acidity.

This unique wine is the result of the natural fermentation of the fruit juice, without added alcohol, produced with traditional techniques very similar to normal grape winemaking. The fruit is crushed, pressed and then fermented. The most important part here is not to damage pomegranate skin during crushing – otherwise its bitterness will be transferred to the juice. The fermentation is usually stopped by cooling the tanks.

Wines fermented from pomegranates alone are somewhat unique in the fruit wine industry in that they often need no other fruits or flavors to balance them out. Pomegranate wine contains three times more antioxidants than red wine or even green tea. These antioxidants have a strong anti-ageing effect, help improve skin condition and lower cholesterol levels.
