There is nothing more refreshing overwhelming or invigorating than a good glass of wine My friend Jenn said that to me the other day as we sat there enjoying a bottle of merlot Today I am going to talk to you about wine its history the different varieties and how to make it serve it store it drink it and judge itSince well before written history mankind has been enjoying wine The first physical evidence of the existence of wine appears in the Neolithic period around roughly 5200 BC Other early cultures to enjoy wine were the early dynasties of the Old Kingdom about 2700 BC in Egypt Historians theorize that early bronze age trade brought the wild grape to the Nile delta By the end of the Old Kingdom wine had become so intrinsic to the life of the Egyptian aristocracy that jars of wine were entombed with them for their journey into the afterlife All that is needed to turn grape juice into wine is the simple entirely natural process of fermentation Fermentation is the chemical change of sugar into alcohol that is brought about by adding yeast Under normal conditions the yeast will go on working until all of the sugar in the grapes has been converted into alcohol which usually ends up being about 15 of the volume or for you whisky drinkers out there roughly 30 proof If all wines were made in this completely natural way they would be very dry It is possible to stop the fermentation early by either straining out the yeast through a very fine filter adding sulphur or my personal favorite by adding more alcohol These methods are used to make sweet winesThe main difference between wines are the types of grapes used but the various ways of arranging the fermentation can produce many differences For example your sweet wines have had their fermentation stopped by adding sulpher or straining the yeast out Dry
