What is Wine?
Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of grapes (or other fruits and berries).
How is Wine Made?
Much like anything else, making wine can be a very simple process, with complex steps added along the way.
In this section, we layout the most basic steps in order to give you a good general idea of how wine is made.
What is Fermentation?
Fermentation is the process of converting sugar to ETHANOL (ethyl alcohol) and CO2 by way of yeast.
When the yeast is introduced to the sugary juice, it eats through the sugar and converts it into alcohol and carbon dioxide.
The CO2 gasses off into the air, leaving behind the alcohol (which, in the case of grape juice, is the wine!).
