When most of the sugar present in wine is transforms into alcohol due to the chemical process of fermentation, the result is called dry wine.

It means, basically, that the wine is not very sweet. With a dry wine, all of the sugar has been fermented into alcohol, so there is no sweetness really left in the wine.
