There ism in fact, a May wine Wiki page (not to be confused with the  
May Wine page, which concerns a musical):


It says, among other things, that sweet woodruff is mildly poisonous,  
but 3 grammes (is a gramme a gram?) of woodruff per liter of wine is  
within reasonable limits.

I'm sort of assuming they mean the dried herb, and I have no idea how  
long it infuses. I guess if you're within that safe window you can  
experiment a bit on infusion times.
