Blackberry Wine

Course: Cocktail
Serves: 1 gallon plus


  • 4 lbs blackberries
  • 2 1/4 lbs sugar, about 4 1/2 cups
  • 1/4 tsp tannin powder
  • 1 tsp acid blend
  • 1/2 tsp pectic enzyme
  • 1/2 tsp yeast nutrient
  • 1/4 packet wine yeast, preferably sweet wine yeast
  • water to fill

How To Make Blackberry Wine:

  1. Sanitize all equipment.
  2. Smash blackberries and sugar together in a primary fermentation container.
  3. Bring 1 quart of water to a boil and pour over the blackberries and sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  4. Allow the mixture to cool to around 70 degrees and add the remaining ingredients, adding enough water to fill your 1-gallon fermenter.
  5. Seal the fermenter with a blow off tube (this ferments a bit violently for a water lock) or leave open for the first part of the primary ferment. Stir the mixture daily for 5-7 days until the most vigorous fermentation is complete.
  6. After about a week, wrack the blackberry wine into a glass carboy. Allow the mixture to ferment for about 3 months before racking again.
  7. At this point, allow the mixture to ferment for 8-12 months before bottling.
  8. Allow the blackberry wine to bottle age at least 6 months before tasting.


  • Be careful when picking as they have thorns. It's best to pick them at the beginning of the season as the later you leave it, the more prone the blackberries are to maggots.
