In its most basic form, winemaking is a simple process and is a natural process. It is as simple as picking the grapes in a big quantity and putting them in a big enough container that doesn't leak. Use a clean object for crushing the grapes and let the juice out. When all the juice is released, allow it to rest for a few hours days, or even months. When we take a look, anyone is able to make wine. The process of waiting for crushing the grapes is called fermentation.
What actually happens is that yeast gets released when the grapes are squeezed. If the yeast comes in contact with the sugar present in the grape juice, it converts to wine over some time. Alcohol replaces sugar. The more sweet the grapes are, the more alcohol will be in the wine.We hand-picked organic gewurztraminer in Paso Robles and scotted them up to Healdsburg in California. Before being pressed, the whole berries were gently placed in a tank for a carbonic fermentation for 7 days. You can buy skin fermented orange wine to make your evening more joyful.

But, as easy as it may seem to make wine to be, people do more to make sure that the wine is of a specific flavor, texture and taste. The choice of the size and the type (whether stainless steel or oak), the temperature at which the grape juice ferments, and the time that the wine is allowed to mature, all determine these characteristics. The most important factor that determines the flavor and the value of the wine lies in the grapes that are used to create the wine.
There are various grape varieties, like, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Every variety and type of grape, (whether white or red grapes) can affect the flavor and taste of wine. The soil type and the region play an important role in the grape's sweetness and, consequently, the wine's taste.
