The only ginger wine recipe I've tried was from CJJ Berry's book, 130 New Winemaking Recipes;

For one gallon;

80g Root ginger
2 Oranges
2 Lemons
225g Raisins
1.3kg Sugar
Yeast & nutrient

-Peel the oranges and lemons (avoiding the white pith) and put them in a bucket with the chopped raisins.

-Bring 6 pints of water to the boil and add the sugar and well crushed ginger. Boil for half an hour.

-Pour this onto the peel and raisins.

-Cool to 20 degrees and add yeast and nutrient.

-After 10 days, strain off into a demijohn and add an airlock.

You could add more ginger as you like a kick, I seem to remember this was quite warming but not fierce. I did make chilli and ginger wine once which was a different story!
