What are the differences in wine?

I need to learn about wine.


Answer by  joantheresa (1421)

The main differences in wine are the alcohol content, what type of grape is used, how many years has it been aged, in what region have the grapes been grown, is it dry or sweet, does it go with red meat or white meat, and, of course, what is the price.

You can pick up a great wine book at most any bookstore. The difference between the types are the grapes and the fermentation-process used. Red wines are typically a little dryer and have a bolder flavor, where whites are usually sweet, fruity and light. You would serve white with chicken or pork and red with red meats. Moscato's my favorite.

Wines are usually red or white. White wines are served at less than room temperature with fish and poultry. Red wine is served at room temperature with red meat.

The biggest difference is the type of grapes used. Other big influences include how old it is, where it comes from, and who made it.


Answer by  Brett (7986)

There are a lot of differences in wine, the most obvious is white or red. The amount of alcohol differs, and the taste (dry, rich, etc. ). The country the wine is made in is also important, as is the year it was made (the older, the more expensive the wine).


Answer by  Jakecutter (1819)

Some of the differences in wine are the grapes used and the age and length of fermentation. Some wines are even classified by how the grapes are squashed.

Red wines tend to be drier. They pair well with beef dishes. White wine is lighter and is better paired with Seafood dishes.

The differences in wine are as vast as the differences between cars. The best way to learn is hands on - start trying different wines.
