What Is Premium Red Wine?

Premium red wine is a meticulously crafted alcohol made with red or black grapes. There are countless distinct categories of red wine, sorted according to their grape, place of origin, fermentation techniques, and more.

Where Does Rare Red Wine Come From?

Europe, Africa, North and South America—red wine can be made pretty much everywhere grapes can be grown. Many of the most popular types of red wine are associated with the specific countries and regions where certain grape varieties flourish, like Malbec from Argentina and Rioja from Spain. France, Italy, the United States, and Chile are other destinations with popular red wine. 

How Is Premium Red Wine Made?

While individual vintners all have their own take on the red wine-making process, the general steps are universal. First, the grapes are harvested, then crushed—seeds, skins, and all. Yeast is added to the mash, and the mixture ferments for at least several weeks. Finally, the red wine is aged (typically in wood barrels), then stored in protective green bottles for years to come. 

How Many Calories Are In Red Wine? 

Wines vary greatly in caloric content, due to their range of alcohol and sugar content. In general, you can expect to consume around 125 calories for a single serving of red. 

How Much Sugar Is In Red Wine? 

Most sugars are consumed by the yeast during the fermentation process, so the amount of residual sugar in a specific bottle of red wine depends on how it was made. Most red wines contain an average of 1 gram of sugar per serving, but if you’re watching your sugar intake, it might be worth double-checking and seeking out bottles classified as “bone-dry” or “dry.” 

What Are The Flavor Notes of Red Wine? 

Red wines are as varied as the grape varieties they’re made from, and the vintners who produce them. Flavors include (but aren’t limited to):

Sweet and floral fruit and berries

Acidic and dry tannins and alcohol

Complex and earthy spice, wood, vegetal, and umami notes 

What Are The Different Types of Red Wine?

A list of all popular red wine varieties would easily fill a book and beyond specific varietals, there are countless red blend wines to explore and enjoy. Here are a few of the best-known red wines to whet your whistle with:

Cabernet Sauvignon wine is rich and tannic, usually aged in oak.

Merlot wine is fruity and balanced, landing between medium and full-bodied.

Red Zinfandel wine is bold, fruity, and spicy.

Pinot Noir wine is delicate, and its fruit flavors are frequently paired with earthy notes.
