Talk about bouquet. Meijo University in Nagoya has produced sparkling wine from grapes and yeast derived from carnations.

Hana no Shiro (Blossom Castle) is the fourth product that the university's faculty of agriculture has developed using carnation yeast, and is now available for purchase on campus.

The rose wine — its light pink color somehow recalls the carnation — has a soft and pleasant taste with a hint of floral scent and contains only 11 percent alcohol, making it easier to drink.
