Tropical wines with no grapes

Well, they've started making just about every other alcohol from wine grapes, so it was bound to happen that they start making wines from other fruits.

The Schnebly Winery makes wines from tropical fruits like Carambola, Mango, Lychee, Guava, and Passion Fruit. They even have a Carambola wine that's aged in French Oak.

Skeptical? You bet. I've found most grape vodka's to be utterly annoying and have serious doubts about going the other direction. I'd love to see these take off though, if for no other reason because it expands the marketplace so nicely.
