Wine Pies are the original flavors made with mostly seasonal fruit. If the fruit is sweet then the pie will be sweet..
NO added sugars or sweeteners added, just wine and fruit. However, if you like them sweeter, we suggest that just add a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream or both. Sinfully delicious! All pies are graded like a bottle of wine for sweetness level. From tart 0 to 10 is very sweet. Gluten-free crust is available. Please ask!
This was one of the first recipes to make.. we loved blueberries and much exploration of how to add the wine without adding chemicals or other additives – it’s a winner. One of my favorites. Sweetness #2
Mixed berries, like strawberries. blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Fresh or in the season as much as possible. This came about when someone asked for other berries to be added to the blueberries. Sweetness #2
If you Love Rhubarb then you’ll love the strawberry and rhubarb pie. I was lucky many years ago, a gal I knew said her neighbor has so much rhubarb and she would tell me and I used to go over there and pick it. I would come out with 2 or 3 garbage bags full. This was a time way before I started my pie business. People who live in the prairies or western states usually love this pie. Rhubarb tends to be on the sour side. Sweetness #1
Nothing like a fresh peach in the summer, don’t you think? What a better way to make a pie with it? Selected chardonnay wine to make it a lighter and bolder flavor. Sweetness #3
I’m so Sexy
The funny story about this one is that I was taking a class and the instructor told us whenever she makes a mistake she says “I’m so sexy.” I was bringing in a couple of pies for a potluck. I went to the store and bought peaches or so I thought. They were actually nectarines. This became an “I’m so Sexy” pie. Whether you want peaches or nectaries it’s still a delicious pie. Sweetness #3
Red – Strawberry
Strawberry as a soloist is great with Rhubarb (Blissful) some people just don’t like Rhubarb. It’s really a root vegetable, generally sour. Red was added to the collection of wine pies. Made with Rose wine and strawberries no sweeteners added. Sweetness #6
