Red wine is formed with dark-skinned instead of light-skinned grapes. During wine production, the winemaker allows pressed fruit juice , called must, to macerate and ferment with the dark grape skins, which adds color, flavor and tannin to the wine. Alcohol occurs when yeast converts dextrose into ethanol and CO2 . The result of these processes: red wine.
