Essentially, Wine is fermented grape juice; the fact is any fruit containing sugar will turn to alcohol if you leave it to ferment. In the process of fermentation, yeast converts the sugar into alcohol. Yeast is found all over the place, and in the wild it lands on the skins of grapes; hence, when grape juice is left to sit about in the wild, that yeast will mix with it and ferment it naturally.


What is the basic difference between Red and White Wine?

Most people believe that green grapes make white wine and red grapes make red wine. That is largely true, but you should know that white wine could also be made from red grapes. First, the variety of grapes makes them different. Red wine is derived from grapes with dark skin (e.g. Shiraz, Merlot, Pinot Noir), and white wine is derived from grapes with light skin (e.g. Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling). The second difference is that the juice (must) is left in contact with the skins for red wine to extract colour and tannin. The red color in red wine is created by allowing the fleshy interior to mix with the pulpy (red) skins when it is being crushed. This process infuses red wines with "tannin," an ingredient that gives red wine its distinctive flavor. So you can make white wine with red grapes - like White Zinfandel, a fine white wine made from a grape with a decidedly red exterior - but not red wine with green grapes.
