🍷 White Wine
  • White Wines: Made from either white or black grapes, white wines are not left in contact with the grape skins after crushing, which gives them a yellowish color.
    • Examples Include: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling.
Section 3: The Elegance of White Wines
  • Red Wines: These are made from black grapes and have a color that can range from light red to a deep, dark red.
    • Examples Include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Noir.
  • Rosé Wines: These wines are made from black grapes but, like white wines, are not left in contact with the grape skins for long. This gives them a pink color.
    • Examples Include: Provence rosé and White Zinfandel.
  • Orange Wines: These are white wines that are made like red wines—a style that dates back thousands of years. The grape skins are left in contact with the juice for days or even months, creating a deep orange-hued finished product.
  • Dessert Wines: These wines are typically sweet and can be made from white or black grapes. The color can range from a light straw color to a deep amber or even red.
  • Fortified Wines: These wines have spirits, usually brandy, added to them. They can be white, red, or rosé, and include styles like Port, Sherry, and Madeira.
