Natural Elderberry Wine


When I speak of making Natural Elderberry Wine here,  I am not referring to the method used in the Natural Wine Movement where grape juice is allowed to ferment naturally using the grape's own wild yeast and the grape's own sugar.


Elderberries do not contain enough sugar for wine making , so sugar must be added in some form. And if the elderberry juice is heated to desolve the sugar the wild yeast will be killed, meaning yeast must be added. Therefore,  I consider elderberry wine made using only water, elderberries, lemon juice, sugar and yeast, with no addeditives or chemicals to be Natural Elderberry Wine.

Chemicals And Additive


Wine producers do not have to put all the ingredients used in making the wine on the label . "Contains sulfites" or "no added sulfites" is about the most you will find. Take a look at this list of chemicals and additives that can be used in making wine, but will not be listed on the label. In the column to the right I have listed these chemicals and additives.


No one uses all of these chemicals in making wine, but if you do not want any chemicals or additives in your wine, can make it yourself.
