Classification of Wine

 

Wine is classified in three major categories: table wines,
sparkling wines, and fortified wines. Table wines, also
called still or natural wines, are consumed mostly with
food, they tend to compliment the meal. Sparkling wines,
for example champagne is distinguishable by its
effervescence and is drunk for the most part on festive
occasions such as weddings, birthdays, and during the
holidays. Fortified wines, such as sherry or vermouth, is
most commonly drunk before or after meals and it is also
frequently used in cooking.
 
Table wines are further classified by color, as red, white,
or ros (pink); and by character, as sweet or dry. Red wines
are made from the skins of dark grapes. White wines may be
made from ^white^ (that is, green) grapes or from dark
grapes, but with white wine the grape skins and pressed
juice do not come into contact unlike ^red^ wine. True ros
wines are the products of dark grapes; their skins remain
in contact with the juice only until it has turned into a
pale pink.
 
Now that you are familiar with the three most famous types
of wines: table wine, sparkling wine, and fortified wines,
perhaps the next time you are out grocery shopping you can
pick out the right bottle for that perfect occasion.
