Which fruits are most commonly used to make wine?
Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. Grapes, due to their chemical balance, ferment without adding sugar, acid, water or any other nutrients. The sugars in the grapes are consumed by yeast and converted into alcohol and CO2 (carbon dioxide).
Different strains of grapes and yeasts are used to produce different types of wine. The process of producing is very complex: biochemical development of the fruit interact with fermentation and terroir. Human intervention, of course, is very important too, and a lot of rules are to be followed here. Making wine is an art!
