Winemakers working with an open wine press machine

We all know that wine is made by fermenting grape juice. This grape juice is put through five steps to turn it into wine: Harvest, Crushing and pressing, Fermentation, Clarification, and Aging and bottling/

It may all seem straightforward, but several factors contribute to the distinct color, taste, and smell of the wine. Some of these factors are:

  • Fermenting the grape juice with or without skin contact gives us Red or White Wine, respectively.

  • When to pick the grapes?

  • What yeasts should be used?

  • How should the wine be aged? Unoaked, oaky, or oaked?

  • For how long should the wine be aged?

  • How much tannin content should it have?

  • Make sure it isn’t corked. While acidity increases the complexity of the wine, nobody wants to drink high acidic wine.

Now that we have understood some of the complexities surrounding the procedure to make wine, you must learn and observe the process yourself before trying your hand at it.
