Home Made Wine from the Permaculture Garden.

After bottling it needs to be laid down for about 3 months minimum.

Colette O'Neill is a writer, photographer, environmentalist and teacher who has devoted the past 16 years to turning 3 acres of derelict land into a woodland sanctuary for all life, planting over 1,100 trees in the process. Colette posts prolifically across Social Media, encouraging planting of trees and regeneration of Mother Earth. Her life energy is now devoted to the Great Goddess, Mother Earth!

  1. Hello and greetings from Poland 🙂 I’m following your blog for quite a long time, it is very inspirational. Here currants are just getting ready to harvest fruits but I have sampled my elderberry sparkling wine today 🙂 I’m in a year 3 of fighting infertile sand soil but slowly and surely getting there .. All the best for you and your lovely Bealtaine Cottage.

    1. It’s lovely to hear from you! There are many polish people here in the west of Ireland and some Polish shops, so am more and more familiar with all things Polish! 🙂
      Elderberry sparkling wine sounds delicious…now that’s one to make!

  2. Hey Colette…..Have you got a barrel big enough for me and my mates (in Athens) to drown in ?
    Good Cheer……:(

    1. Athens? That’s a long way from Surrey? The Celts imported wine from the Mediterranean area long ago…my foremothers would have quaffed many a Greek vino I suspect!

  3. I have never made wine, but I do make jelly from the wild grapes (muscadines) here.

  4. Hi, Good and it looks that your land is very fertile to give you so many fruits. My daughter name is zara too.
