Science Behind Wine Making:

Making wine at home is an art in itself. Though the process of making wine is quite scientific, it still is an art to make a gallon of good homemade wine There’s a science behind the process of fermentation, which simply turns the plain juice of crushed grapes into a gorgeously tasty wine.

Traditionally these  were  made  with equal  quantities of  fruit  and   sugar  and not aged  for  more  than  a  month.  The  end  result  was a  sweet  drink   with minute  traces of  alcohol.   The  same  concoction   when allowed  to  ferment   longer, 3  months  or  more,  develops  more  complex  flavors. 

Things to Keep in mind while making wine:

  • The most important step is to clean, sterilize and dry all vessels and bottles used for making and storing wine. Wash them in boiling water and dry them properly with no traces of water behind.
  • Although ceramic or stone crock jar is ideal for making wine, you can use a glass jar also.
  • Cool the water after boiling and then use it for making wine.
  • Stirring should be done with a sterilized steel spatula or a wooden spatula.
  • Mash the grapes coarsely while stirring.

Selection of Grapes for wine:

The color of the wine depends on the selection & color of grapes. Here we are using thick black purple grapes, which yields a perfect color to the wine. It is better to use black purple grapes than red grapes for wine preparation.
