What is the fermentation process of wine?

Winemaking is one of the fastest-growing hobbies in the United States. This skill is passed down from generation to generation, and each subsequent generation likes to add special touches to give its wine a unique taste. Winemaking, like everything else, the more you train, the better you become. There are five main components for making wine: harvesting, crushing and pressing, fermentation, clarification, aging, and bottling. This hobby is surprisingly easy to learn and, compared to other hobbies, surprisingly cheap, also fun, and makes great gifts for this special occasion.

The first step is grapes:

The first real step in winemaking is growing grapes. Believe it or not, it's not so difficult to do right at home in the backyard. For red wines, preparing grapes involves rubbing the grapes, sometimes with stems, in a car or stamping their feet, which is still practiced in some parts of the world today. Preparing grapes for white wines is a more complicated process. 

Full contact between the juice and the peel after crushing the grapes gives the red wine its color, but to maintain the clarity of the white wine, the contact between the peel and the juice is significantly reduced, or you can allow the crushed grapes to naturally dry to get a lighter white wine. You can use any organic fruits or vegetables to make wine, and this will help give your wine a unique and unique taste.

When making wine at home, several factors must be taken into account: equipment sterilization, grapes themselves, peel, the process used (there are several different ones), temperature, etc. Collecting or collecting the right grapes is, of course, the first step in the process of winemaking. , the next step is to squeeze the entire cluster of fresh ripe grapes

either by car or on foot. Next is the fermentation process, which turns juice into wine, and this is one of the most important steps in winemaking. The trick is to make sure your fermented fruit does not turn into vinegar by processing it for too long, just let it roam and become wine, not vinegar. Once the fermentation is complete, the clarification process begins, and the final stage of the winemaking process involves aging and bottling the wine.

Fermentation:

The fermentation process will slow down as sugar is consumed, and after two to three weeks it will be almost complete, but depending on the temperature at which fermentation occurs, the lower the temperature, the longer the process, which means that it may take up to months fermentation to complete. You can also stop progress too soon, known as “stuck fermentation," leaving residual sugar in the wine.

Here is a list of what needs to be done before starting the fermentation process:

Campden Tablets: These tablets are added before fermentation and again in bottling.

Pectin enzyme: added to help break down fruits during fermentation.

Hydrometer: this allows you to determine the level of alcohol in your wine and helps you track the fermentation process of your wine.

Yeast Energizer: contains essential minerals, trace elements, and vitamins for the growth and metabolism of yeast during fermentation.

Yeast nutrient: add to fermentation to increase yeast activity. Within 6-12 hours, the juice will begin to ferment naturally with wild yeast in the air.

The process of creating wine at home is considered a passion and art form that is used by serious wine lovers from around the world. You can learn a lot by making wine in your home, and it gives you a sense of accomplishment. Home winemaking is inexpensive, takes very little time, and the result is a good quality wine at the price you would pay in the store.
