When someone says wine, then we inadvertently think about grapes. Wine like beer is an acquired taste. Not many people are fond of the taste but Wine lovers are the connoisseur of this lovely beverage. Different wine is teamed up with the different types of food, while wine and cheese are the most favourites amongst the wine lover. Specific food pairing is also very noteworthy while ordering wine. For example, Red Wine is usually paired while eating Red meat, while white wine is consumed with lighter meat like fish or chicken. There are varieties of wine available, but the popular ones are
White Wine, Red Wine, Rosé, and Sparkling Wine, which can be enjoyed by everyone.
White wine is made out of the juice of the grape. It is a misconception that for making white wine, only green grapes are used, but in reality, both light and dark grapes are used to produce White Wine. The exception here is that the skin of the vine is separated before the fermentation process begins. Red wine is made using the juice, pip, skin, and seed of grape. It is fermented at a higher temperature to infuse colour, tannin, flavour and aroma with different level of concentration which can be acquired by the duration of fermentation. Of all the types of wine Rosé requires the shortest fermentation time i.e. mere 12-16 hours is enough for making Rosé. Alternatively, Rosé is prepared by mixing red wine and white wine. Sparkling wine goes through a double fermentation process wherein the first fermentation turns the grape juice into wine i.e., the base wine and the final fermentation process turn the base wine into bubbly wine by adding sugar and yeast into the base wine.
