Types of wine
Though wines are everywhere, there are different types of wine, from the very popular red and white wine to others. These include;
- Red wine
Red wine is the most popular type of wine known for its richness and depth. It also ranges from a deep red to light red color. Red wine also comes in varying levels of sweetness, while some are dry and some are very sweet.
- White wine
Unlike red wines made from black grapes with the skin included to give it a depth of taste, white wine is made from green grapes without the skin and ends up with a lighter, fruity, creamy, and sweet taste.
- Rose wine
Rose wine, on the other hand, is made from black grapes but without the skin. It can also be made by mixing red and white wine. Its taste varies from dry to sweet.
- Sparkling wine
Sparkling wine has gained popularity due to its bubbles during the second fermentation. Sparkling wine can be red wine, white wine, or rose wine.
