Vinification or winemaking

 

Vinification
Vinification or winemaking  is  the process  that leads from grape to wine. We can distinguish two types: red and white  vinification.  In red vinification we use red grapes. With extraction (juice and peel stay in touch for a while) we get the pigments that give colour and tannins to  the wine. Absence of extraction and immediate removal of  the skins gives us white wines, even if the grapes are red ,  such as Moschofilero . The main difference between  red and white vinification  is to keep the skin and juice of the grapes in contact. If  the process  lasts for a short  time,  it will give us rosé wines.
