    Yes. You can make wine out of anything of vegetable origin. Marrow, tea, raisin etc.

    Yes, but it may not taste very good. Or maybe it will. That is part of the fun of wine making.

    Quite a lot of country wines use raisins for the tannins and they act as a kind of nutrient for the yeast, so cranberries would probably do the same.

     Cranberry can be quite tart though, so you may need to add something that will bring a more rounded flavour as well. Maybe a full bodied red grape juice and desert apple juice would produce a rose wine with more character.

    Choice of yeast also makes a big difference.

  • You can make "prison wine" out of anything. You can apparently make a decent tasting wine out of UNSULFITED dried cranberries https://winerecipes.blogspot.com/2009/12/dried-cra...

    Yes, I don't know if it would be very good though because I've never made it.

    I've used dried elder berries though.

    You can make country wine out of anything containing sugar. I've even sampled turnip wine.
