I recently bought a bottle of wine from a local PA winery entitled "Pinot Colada." I assume they blended Pinot Grigio and Coconut. Whatever it was it was awesome. I'd like to try something similiar to this, but use Welch's White Grape and add Coconut juice. Anyone have any recipe advice or suggestions?

Im all over thisthread. I inquired about the same not to long ago.

I have made several batches of wine using the Dole 100% frozen juice concentrates, they offer some great flavor combos. Mango/pineapple etc.

I recently learned that they came out with a Pina Colada flavr that is also 100% juice. Unfortunately they dont carry that flavor anywhere here in Fairbanks.

I sure hop we can come up with something, because I'll make a batch right long side of you!!

I would make two separate wines, one pinot grigio and one out of the welch's coconut juice. Once they are done then blend until you get the taste that you like.

I can't locate my original thread about this but I remmber others were concerned about the oil in coconut.

If I remember further, someone mentioned using coconut juice instead of the sweetened milk. I also brought up using the shreaded bakers coconut, but again the oil issue was brought up.

Looking forward to seeing if we can come up with some more ideas on the use of coconut in a wine recipe.

Dont the people in the tropics make some kind of liquor using coconut juice? It may not be official wne, but I have heard many times of fermented coconut juice.

YOU BE THE MAN!

Thanks for finding it. Usually I am pretty good at finding old threads to, just feeling a little lazy.

I am sure glad to see this topic resurrected. Somehow coconut just seems like a viable ingredient for making wine.

THANKS UBG!
