Beverage cause

White wine

White wine is a wine whose color can be straw-yellow, yellow-green, or yellow-gold coloured.

It is produced by the alcoholic fermentation of the non-colored pulp of grapes which may have a white or black skin. It is treated so as to maintain a yellow transparent color in the final product. The wide variety of white wines comes from the large number of varieties, methods of winemaking, and also the ratio of residual sugar.
