Various types of wines

There are various types of wines available in the market. They come in various categories. But you should select a wine depending on the particular occasion. As various occasions have their own flavour, say in wedding parties champagne or white wine is preferred and in birthday parties on even in other parties the most preferable wine is red wine. Wines are even selected on the basis of food.

As you know that these wines are produced of grape juice by fermentation process. It doesn’t require any kind of sugars, acids or enzymes to ferment. Talking about types of wines, these can be broadly classified into 5 categories. These are:

The Red wine
These are made up of red/ black grapes, these are heavier than white wines, and the skin of these grapes makes the wine red in colour and act as flavours. The various types of grapes that are used to make red wines are:
• Nebbiolo
• Pinot noir
• Nebbiolo
• Cabernet sauvignon
• Montepulciano
• tempranillo

The white wine
These are made up of white grapes. The skins of the grapes are separated from the grapes before the fermentation process, this disables the juice to absorb its colours and hence the white wine is developed. Some of the grapes which are used to prepare white wines are:
• pinot grigo
• chardonnay
• pinot meunier
• Semillon
• Gewurztraminer
The fortified wine
These are also called as brandies, extra alcohol is added for preservation purpose. The level of alcohol is no more less than 14%-22%. It’s also called as the desert wine in U.S.
The rose wine
These also made up of red grape and skins. And these also look red or sometimes pink in colour. This wine contains some amount of tannin in it. They are also known as the blush wines.

Sparkling Wine
Generally, carbon dioxide is added in these types of wines just to give it a bubbly effect to its outlook. These are either mixed through natural fermentation or by injecting the doses. Champagne is one of such types. These types of wines are normally either in white or red in colour.
The general wine is produced on the basis of the use of variety of grapes in the wine making process. Grapes grow in varied places in different climatic conditions this is why some grapes are very hard which grow irrespective of the place and the climate. And on the other hand some grapes are very sensitive and grow only in specific areas in particular regions of the world.
Wines are even known by their brand names, these brand names in turn reflect the quality of the wines – for example: the pinot noir states that the wine has been produced from pinot grapes. These brand names really help in further promotion of these wines and make them a world wide trusted brand.
