Jimmy Tsz Yuen Chan Professor Lovejoy English 101 16 July, 2017 The process of making wine Wine is an alcoholic beverage produced through total or partial fermentation of grapes, or other plants and fruits like cherries, palm, apples, and berries. Grapes are the most used raw product, as these can ferment naturally with the grapes containing most of the ingredients necessary for fermentation. Viticulture is the cultivation of grape fruits and their use in the production of wine. This practice has been around for a long time, with documentation indicating the presence of wine up to 5, 000 B.C. in Egypt (Duarte and Northcote 1248). The practice has however spread through Europe with France and Italy today the largest wine producing countries in the world. There are different types of wine depending on the grapes themselves, and the fermentation process, with this process, also used to regulate the flavor, color and alcoholic strength and quality. Red, pink or rose, and white, are the main colors of wines making up the broad wine categories of sparkling wines, aromatic wines, and fortified wine. The red wine is fermented for seven to ten years before being sold for consumption, while rose and white wines, not enhanced by additional aging, are aged for up to four years. Harvesting of grapes for wine production begins in September or late October. This process can be done by hand or through the use of machines for large estates, though hand picking produces better quality produce. It is essential you choose the best period for harvesting, as this determines the quality of wine to be obtained from the grapes. Harvesting the fruits before they are fully mature produces grapes with more acidity and a brighter flavor, though this has a potentially less alcoholic capacity. Waiting for the grapes to fully mature may expose them to rainfall

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
