Other suitable things for winemaking.

As I have said, wine can be made from more or less anything, provided it doesn't kill you. The following is a list of things that don't fit into other catagories.

Birch sap
Find a birch tree and bleed it of sap using ancient pagan rituals, tubes and a jam jar.
Coffee.
Sounds odd, but it can be quite nice. Weak works better, either instant or real can be used. don't make it too sweet. (bleaugh!)
Coriander.
As mint, but with a certain tang.
Grain
Includes wheat, barley, rye and even malt (is that a grain?). Often added to other wines to add body.
Mint.
Get bundles of it from Indian food shops for bugger all money. Tastes like chardonnay. One big bunch per gallon. Add lots of acid and sultanas.
Nettle.
Unusual to say the least.
Oak Leaves
Or Walnut leaves.
Parsley.
As mint, but with a bit more umph. Good with food.
Pea pod
Curiouser and curiouser said Alice.
Rice
i.e. Sake. Tom has waxed all lyrical about Sake, so here's a link to his page.
Rose Hips
Collect around November. Impossible to get clear. Tastes like sherry
Tea.
Use ordinary tea, or try the infinite varieties of flavoured teas. Again, weak is better. Don't allow it to stew, and don't add tannin, or it will end up smelling like a sewer (bleaugh!).
Tulip bulbs
Alledgedly contains opium, but don't quote me.
