Wine can be made from grapes, fruits, berries etc. Most wine, though, is made from grapes. And no matter what the wine is made from, there must be fermentation, that is, that sugar be transformed into alcohol. If the amount of alcohol is relatively low, the result is wine. If it is high, the result is "distilled liquor," like gin or vodka. White wines can be made from pigmented grapes by removal of skins, pulp and seeds before juice fermentation. Wines might be "fortified," "sparkling," or "table."
Wine production in India, though still at a nascent stage, is likely to reach 18 million liter this year and 21 million liter by 2018 from 17 million liter estimated last year, according to a study. The year-on-year growth rate has clocked five%, a just concluded study by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) said. Thus, due to demand it is best to invest in this project.
