PRIVATE & EXCLUSIVE TOURS FOR YOU TO ENJOY WITH FAMILY OR FRIENDS

Wine is an alcoholic drink typically made from fermented grapes. Yeast consumes the sugar in the grapes and converts it to ethanol and carbon dioxide, releasing heat in the process. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts are major factors in different styles of wine. These differences result from the complex interactions between the biochemical development of the grape, the reactions involved in fermentation, the grape’s growing environment (terroir), and the wine production process. Many countries enact legal appellations intended to define styles and qualities of wine.

These typically restrict the geographical origin and permitted varieties of grapes, as well as other aspects of wine production. Wines not made from grapes involve fermentation of other crops including rice wine and other fruit wines such as plum, cherry, pomegranate, currant and elderberry.

EXQUISITE SOIL + INFINITE PASSION + PLENTIFUL KNOWLEDGE + HARD WORK

Wine has been produced for thousands of years. The earliest evidence of wine is from the Caucasus region in today’s Armenia (6100 BCE), Georgia (6000 BCE), Persia (5000 BCE), and Italy (4000 BCE). New World wine has some connection to alcoholic beverages made by the indigenous peoples of the Americas, but is mainly connected to later Spanish traditions in New Spain. Later, as Old World wine further developed viticulture techniques, Europe would encompass three of the largest wine-producing regions. Today, the five countries with the largest wine-producing regions are in Italy, Spain, France, the United States, and China.

  • Red wine gains its color and flavor (notably, tannins) from the grape skin, by allowing the grapes to soak in the extracted juice.
  • To make white wine, grapes are pressed quickly with the juice immediately drained away from the grape skins.
  • A rosé wine gains color from red grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine.
  • Cavas, are effervescent wines, made in any of the above styles (i.e.rosé and white). They must undergo secondary fermentation to create carbon dioxide, which creates the bubbles.
