Tomato Wine

I got adventurous one day and decided to try some tomato wine. I went to the local market and bought a case of really ripe tomatoes, mixed varieties and gave it a shot. I thought it would be a blush wine but it ended up a white wine and boy was it delicious!


Here is the recipe I used:

15 Lbs. tomatoes
5 cups raisins
4 gallons water
8# Sugar
12 1/2 tsp Acid Blend
1-1/4 tsp tannin
5 tsp Nutrient
5 Campden Tablets - crushed
1 pkg yeast

My starting SG was 1.070. I brought it down to 990 and let it set for a 3 months to age before bottling it.

The humorous part if this is I didn't have a scale at the time but had a dog that weighed 15 lbs. So I held him in one arm and my crushed tomatoes in the other to make sure I had enough tomatoes. The wine turned out great!

I tried this recipe as an experiment and was very pleased with the taste of the wine. It is refreshing and such a nice flavor. Cannot wait to see what it tastes like after it ages more! Try this!!
