Once the necessary fruits are collected, they will be crushed into juice so that it will be possible to start the fermentation process where all the sugar in the juice will be converted into alcohol.

According to the amount of fermentation that happens in the barrel, the taste of the wine will vary. Usually, the yeast that is present in the air will be enough for the process to take place. If it has to be speeded up, then artificial yeasts shall be included. The amount of oxygen present in the environment at the time of fermentation is necessary to be controlled. When there is too much contact of oxygen, there is a possibility for the oxygen to get spoilt as this gas will interrupt the fermentation process.

Once the fermentation process is done, the filtration has to be done. In this process, all the unnecessary substances from the wine that is stored in oak or stainless steel barrels will be removed. This will help ensure the quality of wine gets better as all the unnecessary residues shall be removed here. Finally, the aging will be done so that it will be possible to improve the taste of the wine. The packaging of the wine should also be done in a proper way. According to the age of the wine, its taste will also differ.
