Carrot Wine Recipe

One perk when it comes to growing your own food is that you can gather some of those fruits, vegetables and even flowers from the garden and turn it into wine. It’s satisfying to share a bottle of home grown country wine. Not all vegetables make a nice wine but carrots & parsnips are both wonderful. Carrot wine is really simple to make!

Of all the wines that we have made Carrot is the prettiest. It’s a beautiful clear amber colour.

What Does Carrot Wine Taste Like?

This recipe makes a semi-dry white wine with a twist. It really does not taste like carrot. One word of warning: Root vegetable wines do tend to turn out stronger than fruit wines.

Helpful Tip

Wait for the first frost before digging up your carrots or keep them in the fridge for a few days. This tends to sweeten them just nicely. You can also use a bag of store bought carrots but be sure to taste them to make sure they are flavourful.

Country Wine

Country wines are easy to make and the ingredients you can use are almost limitless. Some ingredients that might interest you include: rose petals, rose hips, parsnips, raspberries, blackberries, birch, rice, rhubarb & apple. If you would like to make Parsnip Wine, you can find my recipe here.

    I don’t see a recipe here. Are we meant to use the parsnip wine recipe? Also, do you have any idea of the alcohol content of the finished carrot and parsnip wines? Glad to have found your webpage. Excited to try a few things!

    Hi Charlotte! I just discovered your beautiful blog and I love it! I tried your carrot wine recipe and it’s looking great! I will have to wait a few months to taste it officially, but the wine has a good potential (and potency!). I have a similar homestading lifestyle in Quebec and I love to try that kind of country-style recipe. Thank you for the inspiration!
