Cranberry Wines

November 18, 2010

The whole purpose of talking about cranberries this week was really leading up to today. Forget having a cranberry sauce –serve a cranberry wine with turkey on Thanksgiving!

My favorite: Shallon Winery Cranberry Whey Wine from Astoria, OR.

The only cranberry cider I am aware of is made by Blue Mountain Cranberry Cider in Milton-Freewater, OR. I believe this will be lower in alcohol than most wines.

Other cranberry wines I have had:

There are a lot of other cranberry wines and meads, technically a melomel, out there. Here are a few that I know of:

I know this is not a complete list, so look around your local area.

Remember that Shallon Winery suggests serving his cranberry whey wine with 7-up, which might work with other cranberry wines.

Cranberry Beer:

While it is a little too late for Thanksgiving this year, one could get hold of some wine kits with cranberry juice and make your own cranberry flavored wines:

Also, for those who do not consume alcohol, may I suggest making for them my mulled cranberry apple juice.

Lots of drinks with cranberries!
