Hi Cha
I don't have my own special recipe for rose-hip wine,Instead i use them as another ingredient.
However going from one of Berrys books you want about 3lb or 1.4kg shelled de-seeded rose-hips per gallon
A hot water extraction is recommended.

The the seeds can be crushed and left in.(I do not use the seeds)

I only use rose-hips for adding colour to white wine kits,In order to make a "rose" wine (no pun intended).
But I do understand they make a good wine in their own right.

Hi Cha, I've got a bag full of prepped rosehips in the freezer, waiting for my bucket to free up - I'm going to follow this recipe as it sounds fairly sensible, although I'll probably do a full hot water extraction as johncrobinson suggests.
