Valley of Wine

There are also wines made from fermenting other fruits or cereals, whose names often specify their base, with some having specific names.

Wines made from plants other than grapes include rice wine and various fruit wines such as those made from plums or cherries.

Some well known example are hard cider from apples, perry from pears, pomegranate wine, and elderberry wine.

Some UK supermarkets have been criticised for selling “wine based” drinks, which only contain 75% wine, but which are still marketed as wine.
