Presentation and marketing
1) Harvest date

Depending on which type of wine you want, the harvest timing is extremely important
Picking earlier will produce wines with higher acidity, lower alcohol
Picking later in the harvest season will produce wines with lower acidity, higher alcohol
However .....

With the advanced technology, even with the wrong harvest time the grapes can be fixed by being artificially acidified.
Cold soaking is a process before adding alcohol in the mix. By keeping the grapes cold it prevents yeast to start fermenting.
how long the grape skins touch the juice while it turns into wine
3) Fermentation
Hot OR Cold?
Fermentation temperature can effect the color and the flavors of the wine
Cold and cooler fermentations (from 42 – 50 °F, 6 – 10 °C ) are usually practiced on white and rosé wines. It helps preserve delicate aromas which has a higher possibility to lose it at high temperature.
