Apricot Wine

Apricot wine is one of those wines that is really good for certain seasons, I enjoy it in the summer.  This wine has a yellow/orange color to it.  Apricot wine has tart flavor to it in my opinion but is pretty good as a spritzer.

Yield 1 Gallon


3 lbs Fresh Apricots

1.5 lbs Sugar

1 lbs Honey

1 lb dried apricots

juice 2 lemons

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/4 teaspoon tannin

1 teaspoon yeast nutrient

1 package wine yeast


  1. In a large pot, boil Apricot, lemon, sugar, and honey in 2 quarts of water for 1 min.
  2. Cool down to room temp and put into 2 gallon bucket.
  3. Add acid blend, pectic enzyme, tannin and enough water to make 2 gallon.
  4. Stir very well
  5. Add yeast and yeast nutrient
  6. Cover and put an air lock on top.
  7. Rack after strong fermentation is complete
  8. Let it sit until the wine is clear, and then cork
