Pumpkin Wine

pumpkinwine.jpgHere’s something interesting found on the Internet: Pumpkin Wine. Three Lakes Winery in Wisconsin makes this and it sells for $9.95 a bottle. According to the marketing description, it is made only from 100% pie pumpkins (that would be sugar pumpkins, I assume). “It has been described as having qualities of a semi-sweet Chardonnay.”

Then again, I found an article by Dan and Krista Stockman of the Journal Gazette in Fort Wayne, Ind., that found it to have quite a different flavor.

We bought Three Lakes Winery’s Wine of the Pumpkin for $2.99 on clearance at a grocery store…. The label said it was wine made from pie pumpkins: We knew it was strange, but we couldn’t resist, especially at that price.

We opened it a couple of weeks ago and realized why it was on clearance. It smelled like pumpkin guts. It also tasted like pumpkin guts….

Checking the label, it said to drink fresh, that it was not meant to age, and there was no telling how old it was. Hmmmm.

So now I’m terribly curious. What does this wine taste like? Did the Stockman’s bottle taste funky because it was too old? If you have the opportunity to try this wine, please post your experience as a comment to this post.
