in thread When it comes to wine, I preferů
Not that I've ever tried it--I just prefer a glass of good brandy to a bottle of wine--but I have an ex-brother-in-law, (a family dentist), who made his own wine from just about any kind of vegetable matter. From hedgerow fruits and weeds, to discarded pea and bean shells. And any that didn't turn out to be palatable he would distil and use to fortify some of his better creations. And I'm pretty sure that the equipement he used was purchased at the local high street home-brew shop.
Perhaps this is one of those "throw back " laws that is only enforced if it gets to a point where it starts to seriously impact government revenues?
