Wine is regarded one of the greatest pleasures in the world. It is one of the most commonly served beverages in the world and has tremendous cultural significance in many countries.

The word wine refers to the processing, fermentation, and production of the grape. Grapes are naturally balanced to ferment on their own without the aid of any enzymes, extra sugars, or chemicals. This brings about the flavor and taste of wine one that is very uninhibited and natural. Other fruits are sometimes added to wine for their fermentation qualities, including black currants and apples. When fruits of this type are used to make wine, it is called an "elderberry" or "apple" wine.
White wine and red wine are the two primary categories of wine. They are then sub-divided into many other subcategories. The types that fall under each umbrella, are typically determined by the type of grape or the region in which the grape was grown.
A common type of white wine is the Riesling. It comes from a white grape variety of the same name and is grown historically in Germany. Riesling is very versatile and is considered appropriate to serve with almost any type of food. It is, however, most popular with white fish or white fishpork. Riesling is also known as one of the few wines that can stand up to the bold flavors of Asian cuisine such as Chinese or Thai food.
Red Wine is divided into categories like Merlot, which comes from anywhere from Argentina to the United States. Merlot is a red wine that usually has a medium body and contains hints of berry or plum. It is also considered one of the most flexible types of wine and is often served with meals involving red meats or darker foods. There is a white merlot that is also in circulation, which is made with a hint of raspberry.
