Jul 2, 2012
It's National Blueberry Month
You can even make your own blueberry wine

wine-400x320_400_01.Get out the baking supplies because July is National Blueberry Month! If you’re a blueberry fan, you might already be planning to celebrate the height of summer with blueberry pie, blueberry muffins, blueberry jam, or just plain blueberries fresh after picking.

If you’re feeling super-charged on blueberries, then here are two wines made of fermented blueberries that you might want to try this blueberry month:

KEEL & CURLEY WINERY Sweet Blueberry Wine Non-Vintage (Florida) $12.

Bring this to a neighborhood barbecue and introduce your friends to the world of fruit wines. Available here.

ALBA VINEYARD Blueberry Wine Non-Vintage (New Jersey) $12.

Up for an even bigger challenge? Try making your own blueberry wine. If you follow these instructions, you may discover a new hobby.
