What is Wine?
Alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits
What's inside the wine?
Crushing & Destemming
The grapes are removed from the stems and gently crush to break the skin. Sulfur dioxide is added in this stage to prevent oxidation and inhibit microbial activity
*Enzymes may also be added to break down the cell walls and aid the release of juice
The juice extraction process depends on the type of wines to be used, but always involves
squeezing the berries. After pressing the juice is allowed to stand to separate the solids.
If necessary the juice may be clarified by filtration or centrifugation.
The juice is innoculated with live yeast, which then carries out the fermentation reaction :
C6H12O6 → 2C2H5OH + 2CO2
Unwanted solids, salts and microorganisms are removed through a variety of physical processes
Biochemical reaction of fermentation
organic acids and trace amounts of organic acids, phenolics, vitamins, minerals and nitrogenous compounds
to pick the grapes at their optimum composition
Advantages and Disadvantages of Drinking Wine
Prevent heart attack
Help the digestion
It slows the brain activity
Cause a serious disease (e.g. destruction of liver, high blood pressure, obesity)
The right dose to drink wine
12 oz. of regular beer
