Wines from around the world

This downtown liquor store website will give you the history and knowledge of different wines that we carry in our
stores. Wines from around the world and from around the country. Normally wine is made from fermented grape juice, however, any fruit that will ferment will perhaps make good wine. Grapes, because of the natural chemicals can ferment without adding sugar, enzymes or additives. The yeast in or added to grapes causes the sugar to convert to alcohol. The type of grape used will determine the type of wine that is produced.

Most wines are made from a European variety of grapes such as Merlot, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon. A wine designated by one of these names usually has to by law contain at least 75% to 85% of that grape. However, some of your more desired wines may be blended wines, made from blending a variety of different grapes.

Wine Tasting

The sweetness of wine is determined by the amount of residual sugar in the wine after it ferments, relative to the acidity present in the wine. There is not much residual sugar in Dry wine.
