    It's a simple, yet tricky question. How can I say in best Latin a wine which is made from fruits other than grape? I would like to say "mulberry wine" in Latin. Can you please help me?

    My suggestion: vinum mori

    The Vulgate (Song of Solomon 2, 5) says uvarum placentis. According with this example, would mororum vinum be good?
    (I'm looking for Classical Latin, so the Vulgate is not so reliable a source.)

    Vinum is used by Plinius for fruit-wine . See the reference here .
